The 5th Wheel

The Corvette Forum reminds us that The 50's technology was ahead of its game.  Those were the days when car manufacturing was boss in the USA and workers, inventors and politics were important toward building and strengthening The Republic.  Rudolph Steingass invented the fifth wheel and built a company producing and distributing them.  We don't think he got too far.  Too bad he didn't have a laptop.  Here are some comments from forum visitors.

* Cool concept, but goodbye trunk.
* Why not just spend a little time practicing parallel parking?
* The loss of trunk space would be a major drawback.
