Dymaxion Car Undergoing Complete Restoration

The Dymaxion Car was and remains one of Buckminster Fuller's craziest, most interesting, and most legendary creations. Vehicle number two is now undergoing a partial restoration, but there's plans to build a faithful, running recreation of car number three.

England's Crosthwaite and Gardiner are big time restorers and they've been commissioned to undertake the partial restoration of the only Dymaxion in existence. This work will be a complete teardown and refurbish job including a renovation of the interior. It won't be a running car when complete, but since its a museum piece that's okay, mostly because they're going to build another that runs and drives. Indeed, they'll be faithfully recreating the third car which was lost to fire, and making it a runner. We're going to be needing a ride in that. [Hemmings]
