More wheels equal a smoother ride, right? That was designer Milton Reeves’s logic when he introduced the 20-foot-long Overland OctoAuto. He also thought using eight tires would allow each one to last longer. Customers didn’t buy it. Reeves displayed the OctoAuto at the very first Indianapolis 500 in 1911. He received exactly zero orders.
