    The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles has a current exhibit entitled "What were they thinking"? They thoughtfully provided cartoon cutouts with possible answers...

    Motorized skates used a 1 HP gasoline motor strapped to your back, a flexible shaft to the rear wheels on the right skate, with a hand-held control for the clutch and throttle to get going up to 17 MPH.

    The AMC Pacer of the mid-70's was low-quality and turned off buyers with the "fishbowl feeling".
    Attachment 50269

    The 1958 Toyota Toyopet just misjudged the market.
    Attachment 50270

    Thankfully only one Scripps-Booth Bi-Autogo was built, in 1913. The 3,400 lb motorcycle had small wheels that would stabilize it at slow speeds or at a stop.
    Attachment 50271

    The US Army purchased 2 full-size units for testing in the early 60's. Not surprisingly, they failed. Large size, slow speed, and ponderous handling.
    Attachment 50272

    The 1950 Edsel Citation is now a collector's dream, though originally it was low quality and sort of oddly styled.
    Attachment 50273

    The 1947 Gregory looked conventional, but had the engine in back and drive wheels up front. This requires a large and heavy driveshaft...
    Attachment 50274

    The 1935 Chrysler Airflow was fairly bland under the styling.
    Attachment 50275

    The Chevy Convair had an air-cooled engine in back which affected weight distribution, and the independent suspension was flawed. It was a target of Ralph Nader and consumer-protection groups. It was killed off in 1969.
    Attachment 50276

    A 1923 Chevrolet used a lot of copper fins around the cylinders on the air-cooled engine. Production shut down after about 500 were built, and most were recalled...for cooling problems.
