They discussed the "lear-chop" car and rear engine mounting. They considered the uses of oils and ways to improve them. They mulled over such subjects as riding comfort and Ihe contributions of tires, springs, shcck absorbers and even seat cushions toward its enhancement. And they even went into such subjects as the utili/.alion of motor buses and trucks, various technical prctlems such as vapor locks and luel line temperatures, torsions! vi- liration dampers, Improvements in popper valves, automotive and airplane Diesel motors, anil a of questions relating lo fuels and their development. Tells of Kear Mounting One of the most interesting subjects al this meeting concerned the radical suggestion that future auto- moUile.s have their engines mounted In back. Herbert Chase, automotive consulting engineer of Forest Hills. N V., stressed this type of mounting ns permitting more freedom [or improving tlie design of the body eliminating all odor, heal and noise from the body, affording a more compact and efficient power plant and providing more room, comfort and greater visibility. The rear-engine car is no innovation, for ii was used severa L years back In some'of the first automobiles in this country and Europe. Cut in the List few years European engineers have returned to the possibility of .such a car fo: general adoption. They have pu some on the streets and have been toying "with the idea until nov American engineers are exceedingly interested. SUidy "Tear-Drop" Design mounting ties in quite conveniently with another radical idea presented at this meeting. It is th? subject of the 'Teardrop" car, with a body shaped like tlie perfectly formed tear falling from a movie actress 1 eye.
