Homer Laughlin
The Homer Laughlin Engineers Corp.
Los Angeles, California
1916

In 1913 Homer Laughlin, Jr. established The Homer Laughlin Engineers Corp. and developed a new automobile with a V-8 engine and a distinctive type of radiator.

The most interesting of all the Homer Laughlin features was the method of propulsion through the front wheels.

The Homer Laughlin Engineers Corp. accomplished the front wheel drive by means of a especially designed universal joint which is used in the steering knuckles. The joint consist of two pieces and the company claimed very little wear. The advantage of the Homer Laughlin's front wheel drive was the elimination of skidding.
