Yet another invention created by a Man in 1932 to solve a problem that did not exist at the time.  By the early 1950's this was no longer the case and Brooks Walker entered automotive history by designing this vehicle.

1. Flip the three dash-mounted button to engage the self-parking feature

2. A continental tyre will lower itself with the help of hydraulic pumps until the car’s rear wheels get off the ground

3. When the car is in the air, shift the car into gear so the right rear tyre spun

4. The spinning tyre will in-turn spin a wooden wheel that will set in motion a series of belts

5. These belts rotates a gear on the back of the continental spare tire

6. The gear, depending on the direction, will turn the wheel to right or left

6. Reverse or drive mode decided which way car would turn

7. Once the car is in position, the self-parking system will stop the wheel from spinning further

8. Before exiting the car, make sure both the rear wheels are on the ground again.

Check and to realize that he designed and patented this vehicle accessory in the 30's.  A man with insight and forward thinking, when many were caught up in the roaring 20's.
