Air Powered LA

(click on image to enlarge)

The January 1932 issue of Modern Mechanix had an article and pictures of a car powered by compressed air that was being driven around the streets of Los Angeles.

I wonder if this car exists anymore. And what more info is available on it. If anyone has more info on it, please send to me. Thanks

Below is an scale model of a similar design air powered rotory(rotary) engine. note the balanced operation. The motor can also be mouned in line with the wheels, allowing for the elimination of drive train parts and connections.
