[Video] 1932 Helicron, The Car That Turned Pedestrians Into Street Sausage


Back in the early 1930s car manufacturers hadn't quite figured out the difference between 'awesome' and 'ridiculous.' Case in point, the 1932 Helicron. This crazy sports car features a full sized propeller... from a plane. This car had quite a few downsides, not the least of which was the lack of a cabin and the fact that any collision with a pedestrian would be like tossing ground beef through an industrial wall fan. To test the full human-mulching capabilities of the Helicron, these amateur Mythbusters tossed hotdogs through the prop around the 3:40 minute mark.
