3. Overland OctoAuto

Year: 1911
Complex Says: In 1911, a man name Milton Reeves threw caution, sanity, deductive reasoning, engineering, and physics to the wind and created his masterpiece of wheel fetishism. However, nobody wanted one of these idiotic contraptions, and none were sold. Not being one to give up on a terrible idea when it's exposed for what it is, Reeves came back with the slightly less craptacular and infinitely more sexually names Sextauto. The Sextauto was way better than the OctoAuto that it replaced, in that it didn't have eight wheels. It had six, and was therefore still an epic brain fart. Unbelievably, Milton later went on to make a huge contribution to automotive engineering. He invented the muffler.
