Lightning Bug Car Is Crash Proof (Aug, 1936)
Lightning Bug Car Is Crash Proof
DR. CALVIN BLACKMAN BRIDGES, the Carnegie Institution of Washington geneticist, knows a lot about bugs, for he breeds them and studies their mechanism under the microscope. But his hobby is Safety First and car building. His three-wheeled “Lightning Bug” is said to be crash and carbon-monoxide proof. It is small and squatty yet perfectly streamlined, with tail-light and license plates recessed and the Pyralin windows flush with the body. The doctor’s aim is to demonstrate what can be done to attain small car safety and readability.
