    davi says:
  • Hot damn, that Dymaxion is a cool SUV.

    Dan says:
  • They should start producing them again – I’ll have one!

    Dr. Design says:
  • Producing them again? Only 3 were built, one was destroyed in an accident and one lost. It was a prototype but functional with a top measured speed of 90 mph. It was basically an aerodynamic minibus — carried up to 11 passengers and was 20 feet long. Front-wheel drive with a single rear that steered like a rudder.

    Tom P says:
  • THis is Good!

    Hirohito Tida says:
