Today in Tahoe History – March 29

Tesla was not the first automotive company to think of establishing a base in Reno…not by a long shot.

 

No evidence could be unearthed that any Desert Fliers were ever built, nor that this factory ever got off the drawing board. At the time this item appeared, Reno had yet to welcome its first car dealership, and anyone desiring to become a “motorist” would have had to travel to Sacramento to acquire a “machine.” But bringing the auto industry to the Truckee Meadows was an idea with merit, and like all good ideas, it has come around again.
