STANLEY STEAMER (1901-1927)
About the car: Steam, having been used on railroad, was the power of choice when inventors created horseless carriages.
Why it's scary: By the mid-1920s, Stanley Steamers had 23 pages of instructions on how to start the car. No wonder: There's a pilot light, a kerosene tank, a boiler and countless valves. Do it wrong, and it blows up.
