Remembering Cheston Eshelman (Automobile Pioneer)

Was Cheston Ehelman ahead of his time, producing a car that got 70 mpg back in the 50's. I guess it depends on the way you look at the "car". With scrub brakes and a pull start, maybe he was just cutting costs for a more affordable means of transportation. In any case, he was in competition with King Midget and other small carmakers of the day. Our own Bill Hossfield is an authority on Eshelman products and met Mr. Eshelman some years ago. For more on the Eshelman cars and the man himself we've got an article for you.
