George McLaughlin of Bangor, Maine, constructed the very unique “Maine Mobile” in 1926. It was intended to be driven on the road, on the water, and over snow. A seventy-two h.p. six-cylinder airplane engine powered the rear-mounted prop, which allowed the machine to travel as fast as a claimed 106 mph on the road. Side-mounted pontoons, in conjunction with thrust generated by the propellor allowed the vehicle to travel up to 35 mph in seawater.
