DSCF2971-square2-useThis post is experimental.  First, because Edison the Inventor (Kekionga’s Radio Whiz Bang!) put in a lot of hours of experimentation creating his Wonderful Propeller Phaeton.

And second,  because I’m experimenting with downloading images for the blog straight from my Dropbox.  And it works a treat.  Let’s hope learning to draw the Wonderful Propeller Phaeton works as well.

(The reference model for the WPP is this 1932 Helicron from the Lane Motor Museum in Nashville, photographed last fall with the big Pentax and the trusty 55mm.)

    Besides the obvious horrific specter of front-end collisions or running into pedestrians or cyclists, I’ve always wondered what would happen if you were driving along and hit a bird, or even a large bug. I guess they wore goggles for a reason…

    I know this one runs, so you might want to inquire at the Lane Museum to see if you can ask the person who drives it when it goes out. He isn’t wearing goggles in the one photograph I have, but they may just have been moving it around the property rather than hitting the open road at speed.
