    Here is another very cool car,PLUS a video at the end....--->>

    1369.jpg
    A remarkable 1976 March 240/771 Formula 1 racing car seen at Louwman Museum, the Netherlands.

    Following the unveiling of the six-wheeled Tyrrell P34 Formula 1 racer, March built its own racer with six wheels. This was made possible by a change in Formula 1 regulations in 1976. The difference between the two cars was that the March had four rear wheels, and the Tyrrell four front wheels. Also, the two manufacturers had different technological objectives: the Tyrrell’s ‘smaller’ front wheels were to reduce aerodynamic drag, whereas the March’s wheels were all the same size but four were fitted at the rear to improve grip. The March’s ‘2-4-0’ model designation refers to the Anglo-Saxon Whyte notation system for axle arrangements in steam locomotives: two leading wheels, four driving wheels, zero trailing wheels. The designation ‘771’ stands for ‘racing season 1977, Formula 1’.

    The six-wheeled racer was tested extensively at Silverstone by Ian Scheckter, Jody Scheckter’s older brother, but it never raced competitively. At the end of the 1977 season March pulled out of Formula 1 racing and the car was sold to the British hill-climb specialist Roy Lane.

    This Maserati 8CTF single-seat racecar won the Indy 500 in 1939 and 1940.
    Original video ---->

    Indianapolis 500, 1939. After a dramatic race, it's an Italian car that captures the victory.
    Maserati 8CTF, driven by Wilbur Shaw, was the only European car to triumph in Indianapolis for two consecutive times Maserati .

    First one is an Amphicat, part of a group of ATVs called AATVs, Ampibious All Terrain Vehicles. They were actually the first ATVs around. ;)

    Here's one of its brethren, an Attex 295 Wild Wolf.

    Or, one of the more unique AATVs, the Coot.

    The one and only Ghia Gilda Streamline coupé originally commissioned by Chrysler in 1955. It was fitted with a normal combustion engine for the shows and then sat in the Henry Ford museum until it purchased by a californian enthusiast who restored it and had it fitted with a gas turbine jet engine finally on the 21st century. This car *could* literally blow your socks off! :)
