Washing Machine Motor Drives Midget Auto 12 M.P.H.
IT MIGHT be small and funny looking but it goes places, does the little midget car built by Stanley McCrary, of Seattle, Washington.
In building his somewhat diminutive auto, Stanley waylaid an old washing machine and made away with its motor. When he came to the problem of providing a clutch and steering gear, he simply made them in his own workshop. As to the gas tank, well you can see for yourself in the photo at the left.
Stanley’s machine develops the breathtaking speed of twelve miles per hour, but be that as it may the darn thing manages to last out a whole day on a gallon of gas, which is supplied at dad’s filling station.
