Here's an odd one for you, Doc - an Australian bus with articulated steering. Powered by 2 Ford flat head engines - each with its own 4 speed transmission. An interesting concept that didn't last long. SW

Beautiful aerofoil design. Probably extremely difficult to corner with.
The hydraulic system for the steering likely took a lot of ingenuity....

The twin motor/tranny setup didn't work so the steering & power module was removed & they were hauled from point A to point B by semi tractors. SW
