Car Pulls Up Its Wheels To Become a Boat
RETRACTING its wheels as an airplane does, a proposed amphibian automobile transforms itself into a rakish water craft. The picture above shows a model of the machine which Paul Pankotan, its inventor, plans to build at Miami, Fla. On land, it uses the power of its drive wheels; afloat, that of a propeller at the stern. The body, has the sleek, graceful lines of a motor cruiser.
