I found this a while back, seen one at the Gilmore Museum a couple years ago. I heard about these and seen pics many years ago. But until you have one in front of you, you can't grasp it.


Shitty pics from Gilmore.

I talked to a guy who worked at a theater in Detroit back when they were showing off these cars. According to him the theater he worked at agreed to showcase one of these cars. He said that when they tried to drive the car up onto the curb they had to have a bunch of guys push it because it had 0 torque and couldn't make it up the curb under its own power.
