Woods Dual Power

Given that we have this great thread on Owen Magnetic we need to have a discussion about Woods Dual Power.  The Woods Dual Power was advertised as "a self-charging, non-stalling, two-power car with unlimited mileage [range], adequate speed, and greatest economy."   You can read a Hemmings Article on the car here:

Has anybody ever had an encounter with a Woods Dual Power?

To truly appreciate the size of that car you had to see it parked next to Tom's typical other stuff.  This goes back a ways but it made mid 30s sedans look small in comparison.  Almost cartoonishly large car.

 

And that was when Tom was twice as big as he is now.

In the first picture, the hood line of the steamer is almost as high as the roof line of the modern hatchback in the background.

AJ you would not have been competing with my wife for Tom's car.  Understand she likes most early stuff, brass & nickel.  We were up there when he had it and she thought it was both strangley big and, for some reason "creepy"! 😁😁
