Topps World on Wheels: Twin Tanker
Spread out those trading cards on the bedroom floor and let’s make some trades!
From the card’s reverse: The Twin Tanker is probably the first of its type to be built in the United States, and is patterned after an Italian design. The tanks, about three and one-half feet apart, are connected by a cross-piece through which all the controls run. The engine is in the right tank, and the controls in the left. Steel tubing and plates reinforce the interior of the tanks to make them strong and safe.
Strong and safe… riiiiiight.

Strong and safe, hahah. Well, I guess it was still better than the Taruffi TARF.

Right! The “Italian design” referred to was Piero Taruffi’s record setter. Not the most successful record car ever, but who could match the Eyston/Gardner MG K3 or the Shadoff Spl?
