Am I mistaken or is that Amelia Earhart at the 27 second mark?
It sure looks like her.
Yes it is Amelia Earhart. She was thinking of investing in the car.
The reason he got the speeding ticket, he had a Ford V8 Flathead for a motor.
Is this the same car now in the Reno National Automobile Museum?
The one in Reno may well be the one shown in the
video. I have the impression that he onlyt built one as a demo. He wanted to build more but was not able to secure financial backing. Strange because at that time he was a well known as an Aritech (sp) and was pretty wealthy.
I learned this in School ( drafting / Mech drawing )
One of his Dymaxion Houses is in the HF in Dearborn. If memory serves, the info there said that there were only two built. Same story as the car, he couldn't get financial backing to produce more. Bucky was way ahead of his time.
I get stuck at who in creation would name their kid BUCKMINSTER.
