Dymaxion Car as an early Art Car

I've been looking a little more at Buckminster Fuller recently and came across his Dymaxion car today.

I gotta tell you these things look a little familiar.

1933 Dymaxion

With the domes and all, Fuller's fingerprints seem to be found across BRC. I was curious if people are familiar with this car and Fuller's philosophical influence on BM.

There is a thread somewhere on that.
I got to discuss his philosphy with him, and he leaned far more to practicality, than many have misrepresented him to be.
