Hopefully, no one will talk about the first thing that pops up.

I've always loved that one... it's weird.. but there's something about it...
How about the Peugeot Quasar?
The Charger III (1968)
or the 1955 Lincoln Futura (might look a little familiar)

Isn't it awesome in the truest, most literal sense of the word? I had a chance to see the Lancia/Bertone Stratos "Zero" in the (silver) flesh at the 1996 Concorso Italiano in Carmel. It was then and is still the most stunning car I have ever seen. Also, for a car that has so much visual presence, it is INCREDIBLY tiny.
Another favorite from that show:
1988 Bertone/Lamborghini Genesis
HAVE/HAD: Mercedes, Porsche, Cadillac, Land Rover, VW (x5), Buick, Mitsubishi, Chrysler, Dodge, Nissan, Ford, GMC

Hudson Hornet, Porsche 964, Mini Cooper, Caterham SV, M-B CLS63 AMG, DeTomaso Pantera

Although everytime I hear futuristic *anything* I instantly think of the GM Futurliner.
I mean, come on. It has "Futur" in it's name!
I remember watching that thing sell at the barret jackson car auction on the speed channel . The guy drove it all the way home
Common sense isn't common anymore.....
That is one sexy design!

80 Camaro Z28 | 89 Scirocco 16v (VR6 soon!) | 37 Plymouth Coupe | 11 Equinox LT (soon to be 2013 Focus 5door)| 11 F150 FX4 | 11 Dutchmen 295BHGS | 11 John Deere 1023E
1954 Cramer Comet with a 12 cyl aircraft engine producing 1350hp
The body of the Cramer Comet was made from De Sotos,
Dodges, Oldsmobiles, Buicks, Studebakers, Cadillacs, Lincolns,
and Fords. Part of the tubular chassis is made up of four-inch
refrigerator tubing filled with coolant that runs to a rear-mounted
radiator. The engine is mounted in reverse and is heavily insulated.
It is expected to fetch about $300,000 at auction.

Ford Nucleon - The nuclear-powered concept
And to think people are worried about a Hybrid wreck these days
That's almost as brilliant as the whole "let's use nukes to dig canals" thing
I like that the cars of the future from the 50s still had giant whitewalls on them.
Of course it's company policy never to, imply ownership in the event of a dildo... always use the indefinite article a dildo, never your dildo.
1938 Phantom Corsair. One of a kind, built on a Cord 810 chassis, and designed/financed by ketchup-heir Rust Heinz, as part of his project to produce limited copies for $12,000 each (Bugatti/Duesenberg money then). Heinz had one car completed, and was killed shortly after in a car wreck at age 21. VERY space-age for its time.
