EIGHT-WHEELED AUTO DEFIES SAND (May, 1936)
EIGHT-WHEELED AUTO DEFIES SAND
Mud and sand offer no obstacles to an eight-wheeled car exhibited by a German inventor, since its multiple tread surfaces assure ample support and traction. The wheels are grouped in two sets of four each at the front and rear of the machineâ€”an arrangement imposing an unusual mechanical problem in the design of steering apparatus. The inventor has overcome this difficulty by adapting the two forward pairs of wheels so that they swing in unison for making turns.
