Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion car of 1933 was certainly "space age". A little more "Flash Gordon" than Apollo moon landing, but still you get the point.
Do you enjoy old cars and long-winded stories about them? If your answer is "yes", then you might enjoy my blogpage. Try it here: http://vwlarry.blogspot.com . Leave a comment, too; I love feedback! Thanx for reading.

Classicmotoringllc.com - my new brokerage and consulting business based out of a lavishly converted first floor bedroom in Allentown, PA. I am always looking for quality enthusiast cars to consign, research projects or consultation opportunities. Keep an eye on my page as you can see my blabberings about cars and other such junk in the blog section!
Those unfamiliar with the man should google Syd Mead, he is a futurist industrial designer who consulted with the auto industry and many other large corporations back in the day. He does these practically photo-realistic looking paintings, and has worked on numerous movies such as Blade Runner and Tron. His body of work is prolific.

1958 Student Sketch
"The dramatic, jet-tube after burner effect is enhanced by the precise bumper blade, but the most surprising element is the crisp, angular styling that anticipated the look of the seventies."
the official site is great too

What I think is cool about Mead, aside from his astounding ability of course, is that he was doing this visionary futurism stuff all through the '70s and '80s, long after the major car companies had come back down to earth, so-to-speak. Not that they weren't still doing concepts, but the stuff from the '50s and '60s was clearly WAY out there .
Mead will have this cool, sleek concept, and it will have white strip tires
Here's one circa late '80s by the looks of it, still going at it:
