Ran across this pic, and loved the concept. What people won't do to head on down the road is simply amazing. :lol:

Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

With that design he also developed the windshield washing system do to dogs and cats that would run out in front of him.

The design of the car failed when his wife bent over in front of it....DIS-AS-TER! :o :o :o

What great styling. Professor Fate would have loved it too.

Either this car, or a near identical unit, is kept in the basement under Ernie's Saloon
in Chugwater. Many period photos exist of it, running the express mail between Saddle
String and Silver Bow during high water and locust infestations.

But Ford did make the trimotor. The vehicle pictured above looks strangely like a Ford trimotor without wings and two engines.
