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.

A 1954 Escher VW-Porsche Kleinbahn Prototyp in the Prototyp in Hamburg. These little trains were built from 1954 to 1971 and were used in parks and botanical gardens. It pulled 3 cars which had space for 90 passengers. Its not a accident that the design of the locomotive looks like a cross between the legendary TEE train and the Porsche 356. This locomotive was powered by a VW industrial engine and was the prototype of the VW-Porsche trains.
