MIDGET AUTO HITS 55 MILES AN HOUR (Feb, 1932)
MIDGET AUTO HITS 55 MILES AN HOUR
For two summers, Gardner W. Turman of Boulder, Colo., alternate boy in the 1929 Edison contest, spent his spare time in his workshop, and the result was a midget automobile that can carry its single passenger as fast as fifty-five miles an hour. Even a motorcyle dwarfs the tiny machine, for it measures only four and a half feet long. A four-cylinder motorcycle engine drives it. The car has three speeds, with a direct bevel gear drive from the engine to the one-foot wheels. No differential is needed.
