If you are a true Steampunker, you know that the Victorians didn’t have cars taking them places. Instead, they had carriages or horses that they’d own or hire to take them from place to place. The first steam vehicle was the locomotive which was invented in time for the Victorian era. The steam locomotive began carrying passengers in 1825 in England, and then soon after in the United States. Therefore, Steampunk cars are really a modern invention, an anachronism that never existed in any form during Victorian times. However, it’s still fun to see what people make, and Steampunk cars are a lot of fun.
Here is a collection of the coolest Steampunk vehicles that we’ve found so far. We also wanted to include other pages that talk about Steampunk cars which you’ll find linked at the bottom of the page.
