The Gildersleeve Uni-Tread Steam Wagon
In the late 1800's Professor Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve designed a steam powered tracked wagon for the US Cavalry. Needless to say it was a failure.
About this creation
Major General Robert Whitehat road on one of the first test runs. He marvelled at travelling over 25 miles an hour. He complained about being showered with dirt.

Turning! What a concept! It's actually completely believable that someone would spend an enormous amount of time designing and creating such an invention, and not realize such an obvious flaw until the testing stage. Welp, back to the drawing board! Great job.

0 1in 1997 a girl called lauren was walking through the forest and then she just disappeared. No one ever found her until 2000 when a young girl called Mary found her body and markings on her chest saying: I wasnt' pretty enough and now that you have read this she will appear in your mirror saying you're not pretty enough and kill you. By the way the girl called mary<3 died shortly afterwards. To be saved, paste this to five other bands. This is true. Now that you have started reading this, please do not stop. This is so scary. Post this on 5 pages in 143 minutes. When you are done, press F6 and your crushes name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is scary because it actually works

The cop in me has to know what you were... um... "doing" when you came up with this? brilliant! Just a wacked out work of art all round! Later ~ Chris.

Fun lookin' contraption and pretty well built. Anything with the name Throckmorton Gildersleeve is cool just on principle alone!

This is really an impressive vehicle. I like seeing the blending of WW and Steam Punk in something like this. It actually reminds me of something out of the 1999 Wild Wild West movie. Very clever. I esp. like how you designed the treads in the center and how it connects with the wheels all around the frame. The steam pipes/hoses are a nice touch as well. Overall, very creative.
