In 1907 Charles Duryea tried to get his floundering company back on its feet with the introduction of a "second generation" car he called the Buggyaut. An inexpensive auto with large wheels designed for rural markets and unpaved roads, the two-passenger model, complete with top, sold for only $700. When the car proved unpopular with customers, Duryea abandoned his dream of an inexpensive mass produced car. The idea, however, would soon be picked up by Henry Ford and other auto manufacturers.
