Ouch!
That sucks!
As with most,I came across the Dymaxion Car quite late in life.Southwest Airlines Magazine payed tribute to it in the 1980s.
I got to see one example at Harrah's Automobile Museum,Reno,Nevada,when attending composite school.She

If the rubber-necker who caused the fatal rollover accident hadn't driven that fateful day,we might have far different stories to tell about that car.
Can you imagine a Sheriff pad-locking the Ford Motor Company after the first Explorer rollover fatality,and pushing the entire company out of business?
That's what befell Bucky.What a loss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
