Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

One of the real pioneers in early application of causal positron energy was inventor Edwin Gray of Van Nuys California. In WWII Gray learned of radar during his tour in the U.S. Navy, having previously attended advanced engineering school in the Army until discovered to be under age (15) and discharged. After the war, by 1958 he had learned to perform what he called "splitting the positive", using "cold electrical energy" as well as the normal positive electrical energy. His first motor was operating by 1961. Preparing to put units into production, in 1974 the Los Angeles District Attorney confiscated all Gray's records and prototypes. To escape bogus charges, Gray later pleaded guilty to two minor infractions and was released. His prototypes were never returned. After several mishaps, moves, and more prototypes, Gray died in Nevada under mysterious circumstances on April 1989.

The Fascination Car was the brain child of Paul M. Lewis, of the Highway Aircraft Corporation. It was developed with a standard engine, but he wanted to power it with ANYTHING that didn't burn gasoline. He was in negotiations with Ed Gray for a while to use the EMA Engine, but that fell through. He then approached Joseph Papp for his plasma engine. Ultimately, neither the engines or the car were ever produced.

..very interesting.. looks like something that might have uses on land and under water. .

Biggest problem with that design is that a single front trike is unstable in hard curves. Conversely, a properly designed twin front trike is more stable in hard curves than even a four wheeled vehicle. But reality aside, it's still neat. I love those early 70's rims and the jet-like intakes!

This is the future we were all promised. Never happened.

That really looks like a future car. George Jetson's living room on wheels. I wonder where it is now.
