People wondered if Frank had lost it - this was something he'd invented a long time ago, and he used to give the vehicles zippy names. But now he announces his newest, latest wonder, and it's like something from 1886. I call it . . . the Electric Car! Worried looks amongst the crowdfolk.

The gun on the front, described as Frank Jr's "wonderful invention,"could throw a "dynamite projectile over a mile with frightful effect," although obviously Frank enjoyed to see the effects close-up.

The interior, we are assured, had "all the comforts and conveniences which money could provide."

It didn't survive the story, like most of his vehicles, and I suspect Frank was glad. The damned thing tipped over every time you took a turn or fired the gun.
