This one could go under so many topics, but as the article is based on vehicles featured in 19th century pulp fiction I figured I'd put it here.

The article contains the following paragraph, which makes me want to seek out these apparently awful works of fiction:

"There were all kinds of steam-powered robots and mechanical horses, airships and helicopters and flying packs and submarines and electric cannon, in these stories, but I want to look at some of the off-road vehicles: Franke Reade Jr.'s New Electric Van, his Valiant battle-van, and Jack Wright's Electric Stage."

It's entirely possible this has been posted before, and if so I apologise.
