Looks like Buckie's Dymaxion car totally copied something earlier. :coolspecs:

No. Not steam powered.

Like all these goddamned things, it burns something.

Steam cars had a brief comeback in the 1920s because a newly developed flash boiler made for a quicker and easier start up than cranking, whereas the 19th century steam cars took more than a few minutes to build up a head of steam.

So it was not the internal combustion engine itself that made the steam car obsolete, it was the electric starter.

I WANT!
I can picture it~~~~~

Shemp in said automobile with one perhaps two blonde floozies' and his "boys" in the back. All armed to the gills with Thompson machine guns dressed in pin-striped suits drinking boot leg hooch. Not the cheap shit made using car radiators but the good stuff from Cuba.

In Florida of course.

Of course! We'd go down the street nice and slow, so everyone can see my importance, and I'd toss silver dollars to the little ragamuffins and make them happy.
