Yep, better aerodynamics going backwards, what a terrible shame.

It's like a Cozy Coupe built by Scaled Composites.

Jimmy Built six-wheel steamer



Just A Car Guy: coolest car I saw today, the Jimmy Built, 6 wheel steam car, built from scratch. 300 ft lbs torque at 1 rpm. 7 hp.
  • 7hp boiler
  • 300lb/ft of torque at 1RPM
  • The redline is 160RPM.

That steamer might not be the most practical ride, but sure it's cool.

Unlike the Jaguar D-Type, the Mercedes 300SLR relied on drum brakes. And, of course, the revolutionary 'Air Wing'.

I said something about that car once and someone pointed out the 80:1 spectator/driver death ratio. I think air brakes should be perforated, as on the Dauntless dive bomber.

Controlled turbulence...with an emphasis on the word "controlled."
