Old Time Photo Of The Week - Stanley Steamer Race Car

For those old enough and who might remember hearing the name, here is a picture of the Stanley Steamer racing car.  This car is over 100 years old and is powered by water.  Steam water that is.  It's not gas and it's not electric.  This is one of many models.  The steam engine for cars was one of the original contenders for automobiles in the first part of the 20th century.  Steam engines, electric engines and gas engines.  Gas engines won as gas was cheap.  What happened?  Monopoly.  Plain and simple.

  We do not need to reinvent the wheel.  We just need to improve on existing technologies.  This is our old time photo of the week.  Check out our old time photo of the week every Sunday right here on GVLN.
