Spare tire to aid parking?

Recommended Posts

Sorry if I'm late to the party on this but I thought that this was pretty weird.

Anybody ever see one of these?

Thats a heck of an idea, they should offer it now. After all, todays cars already have everything under the sun on them.

Bought a garden shed a few weeks ago that was delivered on a trailer with a very similar feature. Hydraulically driven wheel that could be lowered so the driver could creep the trailer sideways, very handy.

That was not new for 1954 as the film suggests. I had seen a video of a similar invention done in the late 20s. Not much is really a new idea on vehicles today anyway with the exception of the addition of electronic controls. Even this park feature is not new and is available cars today. The auto park feature is made possible by electronic control.
