It occurs to me that others here may share my morbid fascination for the truly wretched gaffes that are scattered throughout the history of Sweepstakes, and thought we should reserve a single thread dedicated to examples of this genre, for the discussion and amusement of those who share my curiosity for what might be termed the "Ig-Nobels of Sweepstakes."

As per the description in the 1965 Buggy book (from which the photo is scanned) those are Solid STEEL wheels with no tire on the rims of the Dorm Council's "A" buggy.
Gee, I wonder where all the energy went.....
Feel free to join the discussion, and add new examples of Boneheaded Buggy Boondoggles.....
