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.

  3. Best. Car. EVAR!!!

  4. OLD SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. are you crazy mr.reeves? more wheels does not mean a smoother ride!!!

  6. Wait… I see his logic. Let’s say one wheel fell off. The car would still work because there are still 7 wheels holding it up.(Plus, 7 is a lucky number, so the car’s owner might have good luck.) In fact, this car could withstand the middle 4 wheels off because 4 wheels would still be holding it up.

      or get military car

    • I take that back! What everyone says about this trash is true! More wheels = more ugly, more squeak, morgageing your house, and my logic, A BETTER CHANCE OF TIPPING OVER!!!!!!!!
      Mikey, you COULD just park it by the building you’re at, but I don’t think that’s a very good idea. Someone could steal it.

      • parking a 20 foot car by a building? i think not!and more wheels means more wheels go over a bump!
