Critics of marijuana will note that the car is from the Hemp Museum. This may explain why this "bitsa" appears as it does.

It looks like he is turning the steering wheel to the right and the machine is turning to the left.

You can get the 45 detailing the sounds of the cars that were in that museum. The album sleeve has some more info on the car.

Apparently - not a Model T but a vehicle made up of over (19) vehicle & airplane donors.

It was built by Paul L. Hemp who called it the " Thing ".

It bends in the middle & sounds like a cross between a Spitfire airplane and a race car when running.

The collection of (40) some vehicles was sold to The Bonanzaville in West Fargo, ND which open for the season May 1st.

Not sure if they still have the car or not ....

Paul Hemp did not own all the cars in his museum. Many were on loan from friends who "stored" extra antique autos in the museum. The contents of his parts shed were sold to Pete Peterson of Little Dearborn.

I tried VERY hard to come up with a comment...humorous or not...about the car. About the best I could do is ask, "Why"?

Why not ?

The guy was an inventor - apparently the " Thing " ran & drove.

His time & money ....

Why not?

I'm trying to figure out why a car with no body has that bulkhead at the back. It couldn't be a cooling shroud for a VW... could it?

Joe,
It has front wheel drive, but steers from the rear axle (kind of like a grocery cart). That's why he's turning the steering wheel the "opposite" way.

when we reversed a WC Allis we used a reversing gearbox to it would turn the right-way. much less to think a bout in a time of panic.

The car is in a county museum called Bonanzaville, which is in Fargo ND.
