I am getting ahead of my self?? Really?? I posted "It was 1769, with the creation of steam engine automobiles capable of human transport. In 1806, the first cars powered by an internal combustion engine running on fuel gas appeared and since then just got more improved upon."<quoted text> You're getting ahead of yourself.
"Steam-powered wheeled vehicles, precursors to later automobiles"
Sure there were many prototypes, but no viable autos that went into production before 1901, sure you could buy a custom before then.
But you would have to have been rich and are buying something that
is not economically viable. After the car was a viable option the tank followed within a decade. Which was my claim, that if cars were around in 1806 the tank would have been used in the civil war.
But cars were not available in 1806, a few prototypes were.
But like with airplanes , as soon as a viable airplane was built, it went into service as a weapon. As soon as the car was viable, it went into service as a weapon.
So what the hell are you talking about. Those are straight out of Wiki.
