I found this on Photobucket. I don't know if its a new creation... something old... or what... but I really dug it. I thought of this thread when I first saw it.

These are movie props, I can't think of the name of the movie.

Norwell, other contributors, I seem always to test the waters abit, while not wishing to upset applecarts. The four-banger cars as might be rendhered by the sculptors among us really interested me. I keep looking at the octane formula {c-c-c-c-c-c-c-c} w/a bunch of Hydrogen atoms strung around the perifery.
What we need to show the gang, or the rest of the auto-world, is how to make power (fuel-cell?) while doing it efficiently. (IE greater than 30%) Imagine having a streamliner rad shell, full hood and sleek finish, that burns cleaner, and yields 50-60 mpg. Suddenly others' realize that we have connected our skills, desires, and visions. I worked on the Hybrid forms, and an electric "Yugo" turned Sungo, 15 years ago now.
I think that any effort you would risk. would encourage the "unfolding".
Best, JP

That makes sense. I wonder how fast, and more importantly, how quick, one of the fuel cell cars would be...

[quote=scootermcrad;1926017]This is a neat thread! I like this!

I get a lot of inspiration from all things mechanical. Something some of you may find as strange and unusual that has inspired me is the graceful construction style of early time pieces. The way the frames are cast/constructed, style of the gears, the gizmo factor and the way things were painted all wrapped up into one functional piece. Mechanical art that has been functional for 100's of years! Take a gander...

(all pictures from Mark Frank's "My Time Machines" website)


WILLIAM POTTS, LEEDS, ENGLAND. 1900. Model No. 7




ARSENE CRETIN, MORBIER (JURA) FRANCE, 1903



Check out the engine turning


LUDWIG. HAINZ, PRAGUE, CZECHOSLOVAKIA, 1907






I love these time pieces, my uncle was a direct descendant of John Harrison who made the longitude clock.
I'm drawn to anything that has mechanical form to compliment it's function, old barometer, hand opperated sewing machine and even old lathes. To be honest, I'll look at most things and find a shape or form that'll spark some kind of thought.

I would love to such a thing happen in our lifetime. "...if you build it they will race it."
