Bruce Baldwin Mohs was a true American eccentric. A seaplane builder, he diversified into making monstrous safety cars with the outlandish Ostentatienne Opera Sedan in 1968. This larger-than-life car had an 8.7-litre V12 fire appliance engine, massive 20-inch wheels (four decades before they became fashionable), bumpers the size of girders, a single rear door and seats designed to pivot to the horizontal in the event of a collision.
