About the Speaker
Brief Abstract of the Talk
My talk will describe the development of steam cars from the very early days when a motorist had a choice between steam and internal combustion engined cars. I will then describe the features of the more popular and successful designs up until commercial manufacture finished in the 1930’s. I will also have a little to say about the development work which was done in the 1970’s to built a car whose exhaust emissions were non polluting. In conclusion I will describe a 2009 attempt at a world record speed for steam cars.
