      Not old, but spacey for sure.

      That's a Peel Trident (based on the Peel P50). You don't watch Top Gear, do you?

      To me it looks like a Fischer Price toy for kids. Not sure why it would be seen an Futurism, unless being crammed in a sardine box without a/c with a sunlight focusing glass canopy is the future of automobiles.

      This thread owns so hard!

      I especially like that one, I'd rock this if it was made with modern materials and had some oomph, as long as it kept the original styling how cool would that be

      I definitely wouldn't call that space age styled... unless you consider 1930s France the space age.

      How could I have forgot to mention the Moonster?

      It's "spacey" all right; the Aurora "Safety Car" of the 1950s.

      I think they are related.

      When I was in grade school, our school library had a book that was filled with the optimistic space-age designs of the fifties. It had the Firebirds, the Nucleon, and many others.

      I've been looking for a copy for a while now, and I'm thinking this thread might jog some memories. Anyone remember the title?

      Top notch thread!

      Sometimes we get a peek at Big 3 concepts of yore at Woodward Dream Cruise in August. Another place to find auto-gems is at the Henry Ford Museum.


      ...And I completely agree with TurboWraith - this Lolcatz crap has GOT to come to an end. It's so pathetic to see grown men talk like babbling idiots. It was mildly funny when it was new - now it's so overplayed like an RIAA moneymaker.
