THE PLANS ARE SET FOR BUSES TO RUN ON STEAM

FOUR QUIET, SMOG-FREE BUSES WILL BE OPERATING IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA NEXT YEAR, IF A FEDERAL GRANT IS APPROVED FOR A STEAM-BUS DEMONSTRATION PROJECT. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THESE BUSES WILL BE CHEAPER, QUIETER, AND MUCH MORE SMOG-FREE THAN CONVENTIONAL MODELS. STEAM ENGINES WILL PROVIDE NOISELESS, VIBRATION-FREE, LOW-MAINTENANCE, POWERFUL, AND CLEAN URBAN MASS TRANSPORTATION. SINCE A STEAM-ENGINE CAR DRIVING AT 60 MPH GETS 20 TO 22 MILES ON A GALLON OF KEROSENE, ECONOMIC TRANSPORTATION WILL BE PROVIDED. A DESCRIPTION IS PRESENTED OF A STEAM CAR THAT HAS BEEN DESIGNED.
