Ye would also need the arms of an orangutang and the legs of a chimpanzee to be able to sit rider-style! I spent over 20 years on motorbikes and would just hate to have to ride this thing for very long. But, I suppose as a concept, it's ok-ish!

As a model car builder, I've long been in awe of this builder's imagination and execution. This is based on the AMT 1/25 scale 49 Mercury. It's crafted so well, it's hard to appreciate how minuscule his clean details are. Here is a link to Hollywood Jim's build gallery.

Copper, portholes, weird engine and, supposedly fuel supply - what's not to like? Grin

But surely he'd never get a roadworthy for it!! Cheesy

Excellent article. Many a time I would have wished to have a car, even one that only moved at 15 mph to go to work nearby just a few miles away...

That reminds me of this car blog, what i saw some times ago. (Funeral cars from few decades later, but their ornamental style look very similar.)

It's not so stylish. But...

 This project was created by the St. Petersburg tuning Studio Truck Garage. The basis for the project were two rare Soviet car 40-50 years-GAZ M-20 "Victory" and GAZ-M1 (the legendary "Emka").

Tuners approached the project thoroughly. First, two sketches were created for each of the machines. The first SUV with the face of "Victory" received a new name - "Alice". The SUV with the body "Emki" was called "Hyperion".

The resulting body-on-frame SUVs have a supercar with a capacity of 535 horsepower. However, tuners hide which of the cars became the donor of these hybrids with such a powerful engine. The interior of both SUVs has also changed. While the work is not yet finished, but the fact that the monster trucks will cause delight among motorists, experts and experts, is no longer in doubt.

oh! wait! you forgot the brass goggles and gramophone sound system! you suck!
HAHAHAHAHA!

regarding the "watt governor",



i couldn't remember what it was originally & said "ball spinner", then i remembered they were necessary for steam engines to stop them from running out of control. it has many names, but centrifugal clutch  isn't one of them, at least in search results. as a steam engine revs up, the weights spin wider until they push a vertical release valve (if memory serves me right) as a sort of throttle. i never thought knowing that would prove useful.

i forgot this car from "the golden compass" which i always intended to post to troll purists who define anything that ISN'T 1800s victorian era as dieselpunk. it CAN'T be dieselpunk because it's powered by some kind of ENERGY in the front wheel, MY brain works by making connections and is allergic to calculatus eliminatus.

if you REALLY want to get TECHNICAL,
monster movies, superhero, fantasy and religion are ALL sci-fi because THEY FICTIONALIZE SCIENCE. it can't be argued, but that doesn't stop inside the box thinkers from ranting & raving



and just to troll further...



from stardust literally captures lighning in a bottle and is a "land vehicle" because after it flies... IT LANDS!

HAHAHAHAHAHA
