Anyone knows the Moxon Tractor ?

Found this on PreWarCar, anyone ever heard of the Moxon Tractor ?
Was it a conversion in kit form, or was it built as is, and where ?

While Rustphilia in itself is a harmless affliction, it can develop into Junkitis which will attack the central nervous system, affecting ones sense of sound judgment, it will in the end lead to disconnection with society in general with exception from people with the same mental state :lol:

Re: Electrics and autonomouses

On our side of the pond in the Netherlands full electric and hybrid cars are heavily subsidised by the government, up to about half of the total cost of the car is tax deductable, so no wonder the car companies sell a lot of them.

In stark contrast to what we are used to in our Ts, the forces on the suspension in a modern car are waaay bigger while braking then when accellerating, the brakes have to turn all the kinetic energy stored in the moving car into heat to bleed off that energy and stop the car. have a look at cars in...

The Firestone demountables were a very usefull accesory (almost a must-have item) on the ambulances in use in World War One.
