As roads become narrower and the car population increases almost everywhere in the world, parking becomes an even more difficult task. But this video proves that with a little innovation and creativity, that problem can be solved.[/extract]
Mind you this was the 1950s and honestly, I don't know why this invention didn't catch on and we'd rather try to invent a car that parks itself (Lexus' LS460L) which doesn't really work either. In the video, the invention in question is a fifth wheel at the rear of a car, (the spare wheel) and it lowers itself and swivels to enable the driver to park and get out of a parking space with ease! This looks amazing in itself and I really have no idea why no car company picked it up. It would definitely keep those impatient blokes who horn and swear when others are trying to park, parallel parking especially!
