Probably a carbide cannon.

Yes, the cannon is a nice touch (wonder if it makes a bigger pop than the car can?)...and it is a carbide cannon, notice the large reservoir between the wheels.

This is my favorite all terrain touring...I especially like the radiator cap...a touring capable of handling all comers, lol.



(and yes I know it's not real...but it is fun)

Both of these cars are obviously high caliber vehicles.

The cannon came as standard equipment on the Hannibal Eight - "Push the button, Max!"

Martin,
That all-terrain touring looks like it could have been Henry Ford's first prototype for a WWI tank.

Get one for you very own! Yep, they still make them.

No affiliation with the company, they're just COOL! Still have the one my Dad bought me at the fireworks stand when I was a kid (before the insurance companies' lobbyists had fun outlawed).

drift but positive comment...

Now there's a really good look at that '15 running board splash shield crease! One of the best I've seen so far...

Lots of folks think the flare is simply a bulge with a place where it starts. Real '15 shields look like someone actually bent them by accident! Has always been a tough concept to convey :-)

The Hannibal Eight was used in "The Great Race" driven by Jack Lemon and Peter Falk. It also can be seen in "Charge of the Model T's" (driven by Louis Nye I seem to remember).

I seem to remember seeing the above display at the Petrerson Museum in Los Angeles. The torpedo in the photo was in "The Great Race" also.

If I remember correctly it is powered by a VW air cooled engine.

George, I agree about the crease in the '15 splash shield. It is glaringly obvious when you take a close look. If you were to ever visit the Macs Auto Parts showroom, there is a '15 Touring on display. The drivers side has the crease and flair and the passenger side has a plain, straight one due to likely replacement, making comparison easy.

And just when you think you've seen it all! Might not be a bad idea really, what with all the idiots on the road these days!
