It’s hard to know where to begin with this site. Here you can find excellent pictures of Steam Cars. If you click the photo you either get an enlarged picture, or a page full of information about the car and what was taking place in the picture. Like the third photo from 2004 talks all about Thomas Edison. What incredible pictures! At the top of the page there are three buttons, Vintage Photos, Mystery Photos and “Chuff, Chuff, Chuff”.
Vintage Photos — takes you to a page full of photos that are from when these cars were actually made and the main way of transportation.
Mystery Photos — an interesting lot of photos that ask a lot of questions. Quite a few diagrams, and perhaps design drawings.
Chuff, chuff, chuff — is a media file that you can download, to hear what the engine sounded like. It does make a chuff, chuff, chuff sound.
If you scroll down past the photos, you can browse other parts of the site like the Alma Engine page filled with pictures of the engine. And if you scroll further down the page you can find the “What is a Stanley Steamer?” link. Which takes you to another site, but has a lot of great definitions of what makes a Stanley Steamer, and what makes them so nifty. It even has pictures too!
Back to the original site of today’s cool site, it is filled with gems and it just takes surfing around to find them, this is an excellent site devoted to the Stanley Steam Motor Carriages. I’d love to own one of these, and just drive it around some I think it would be fascinating! I’ll be adding it to the list of cars and motorcycles I’d love to restore.
