Nuclear Car

The auto industry has always been considering what it would do, if oil became a problem to source.

In the 50's, nuclear power was relatively new energy and as it produced such a large amount of energy from a small amount of physical fuel, the designer were asked to design a car that would be powered by a reactor, and this model is the result.

The reactor, power turbine and electric generator was to be located in the space behind the passenger area.

I am sure a branch of the research/designer area imagined that by this time, we would all driving nuclear powered autos that only required a small pellet of uranium to power the car for weeks.
