I am not a historian by my own standards of what one should be. But these cars keep crossing my radar every now and then. Lately I've been wanting to put in a thread looking at these cars, and just maybe shaking out the stories-wherever they lead.

 

I will post pics of these cars, in no chronological order

The Mechanical Rabbit

Keep in mind, the car this thread leads to, and how it may have affected todays cars, interests me, and maybe it will you too.

I have to go now, and like I said, "I'm not a historian by my own standards".

There were other sprint type roadsters, from everywhere coming into the area we know. The Tulsa people had the distinction of even a Zink /Watson(?) roadster being turned into a super. Yet the Mechanical Rabbits keep crossing my radar and won't entirely go away.

The three original Brown built cars ran all over the United States, under many sanctions, and with a load of talent behind the wheel.

Just how much influence did these cars carry out? I don't know, but I do know they still get talked about today, much more than you or I might think. They really made an impression.
