All those in favor of GREENING--1933 Dymaxion ~ The Dymaxion car was designed by Buckminster Fuller in the early 1930s. Its name was a composite of the words ‘dynamic’, ‘maximum’ and ‘ion.’ The three-wheeled Dymaxion Car had rear steering and front-wheel drive powered by a Ford engine. The car could transport up to 11 passengers, reach speeds of up to 90mph, and ran 30 miles to the gallon.
