Something is a little different about this car's front end. It has a purpose. Why?
It was a production automobile capable of up to 62 MPH.

My first thought as well. The thing looks like a boat.


I don't have a question to keep this going thread going, but I am wondering if the purpose was to give it the smallest turning radius possible (better maneuverability)?

No the turning radius is not the reason.

Nope not a flying car. Land bound only. Nothing to do with air or sea.

Ahhhh, it's to get it into tight spaces, I am thinking for train or boat travel. Or it could be simply for parking.

Just wanted to stop by and say Hello to everyone, sorry I haven't been terrorizing everyone lately. I have just had entirely too much going on lately, 3 frame off's, 2 insurance repairs, and 3 more insurance repirs waiting on me. Just haven't had time to get on here. But never fear I will find a good question to keep in store. Hope everyone is doing well.
