The Bisbee Daily Review
December 31, 1922
What are the problems facing the automobile engineer?
This question sounds superfluous, with the highly developed cars seen on the streets. But, take it from C. C. Hanch, vice president of the National Automobile Chamber of Commerce, there are still some radical developments to be considered in automobile research and design, before the motor vehicle can be declared perfect.
These he enumerates as follows:
Development of strong light metals also steels and alloys with high tensile strength.
Designing of carburetors which will reduce fuel consumption and also successfully utilize low grade fuels.
Improvement of braking and spring devices.
Building of more easily manipulated transmission.
Advance in headlighting system which will minimize glare.
Simplification of construction in general.
Developments of equivalents or substitutes for existing materials.
