Two of the many American car makers, Gale and Model, offered this on their cars?

What did they offer, and why?

Bob
Golf clubs

There were many American auto makers that offered this feature, Two of the auto makers were Gale and Model, These were the names of two of the auto's that had this feature.
The question, what was the feature? and why did they have it?

Bob

I don't care if you have other auto makers, they just have to have the feature, and you have to tell me why?

Golf club doors?



I have no idea but Dan said golf clubs so I am thinking those are names of clubs? I had a 24 Buick Roadster body with one.

Nope not golf club doors.

Gale And Model were the names of auto makes, not golf clubs

Joe they really weren't built to check the engine, but it was a bonus if you had a mid-engine car, they were built for working on the transmission, which needed a lot of maintenance. It was easier to lift the body than take out all the floor boards and seat, so the car was hinged in the back.

I thought the cars Gale and Model would get people going some where else.

Good answer Joe, you have the floor.

Bob

Thanks, Bob. The tilt body was the only unusual bit of information I could find about a Gale automobile. A car called a "Model" is completely ungoogleable. Great question, Bob. I never expected to get it right.

Here's the next question:

What year/make/model of American production car was the first available with a turbocharger?

You got it The '62 Oldsmobile F-85 was the first American factory turbocharged car. I'm not sure if you had to get the Cutlass trim to get the Jetfire engine, but it would stand to reason.

Nice job, Bob. Next question is on you...

This maybe a little harder, The question.

The Duryea brothers were have been said to make Americas first gasoline powered vehicle in 1893, but in fact two others made autos before this, ( there may have been other backyard builders we don't know)
Who were these two men and what did they build and where were they built, and what year?

Bob
