Christie at the Starting Line -- February 27, 2013

Walter Christie was an imaginative automotive engineer.  In this image from the 27-September-1906 Motor Way, Christie and his mechanic wait at the starting line of the Vanderbilt Cup race in his front wheel drive car.  Later, he developed a tank suspension which the United States Army did not adopt, but which the Soviets used for the T-34.
