In owners column:
    Current owner is identified by 2-letter country & state
    Date to left of name is purchase date, to right of name is known ownership date

Note for 1903:    Model designations are in parentheses because SMCC literature did not not use model designations until 1904.
                            The designation letters created in 1904, however, align with models from earlier years (except for the surreys).
