Very Old and Very Unusual Car Week #4

The 1901 Toledo Steam Car created by the American Bicycle Company of Toledo.  Those wheels do look a bit familiar…

    It probably wouldn’t do us any harm to bring this old baby back on the road!!

    I wonder how it feels when driving it during the rainy days 🙂 Awesome to see this collection!

      They don’t take their cars out in anything but the best of weather. These are not only their investments but their babies 🙂

    Now this would be a great for a Sunday drive down the back roads.

    My first thought was how dangerous to drive around on top — or in front — of a boiler. Then I considered how safe it is to drive around behind an internal COMBUSTION engine seated on top of 20 gallons of gasoline. Tell me, why did electric cars lose favor again?

      I blame the gas companies ?

        I agree and probably range, too, played a part. Electric cars just don’t go as far on a single charge as gasoline powered ones on a tank of gas. Then, too, a fill-up is hours
        faster than a re-charge.
        Obviously, transporters are the way to go.

        I dunno…not ready to have my molecules scrambled any more than they are already 🙂

        Bones? Is that you? 😀

        Damn it, man! I’m a photographer not a physician! 🙂

        Perfect! LOLOL

        I’m watching “CBS News Sunday Morning” in which a segment was devoted to “Star Trek”. Among the clips that were shown was this gem:
        Kirk: “Ever hear of a Doomsday Machine?”
        McCoy: “No, I’m a doctor not a mechanic.”
        I almost spit my coffee at the TV screen. 😀

        If you get BBC America starting this Thursday they will be showing (I think) all of the original Star Trek episodes. DVR on record!

        Well, set my DVR to stunned. 😀
