Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Before the ill-fated Tucker automobile, Preston Tucker joined forces with Indianapolis legend, Harry Miller to build a lightweight and fast combat car. Using their experience at Indy they created an armor plated speed demon that could reach 115 mph while its three machine guns pumped out 2900 rounds a minute. Unfortunately, the government never bought the remarkable car but they did like his 360 degree machine gun turret. The turret was ended up in PT boats, landing craft and on B-17 and B-29 bombers. His connection to the Navy during WWII may have influenced his decision to name his Post-War dream car -- The Torpedo.
