      Sadly, it went into production

      Sadly, not looking like that. Just like the Aztec, there was a huuuge gap between concept and production.

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

      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.

      Some of the Corvette concepts were kind of spacey.

      I love old pics with women wearing two pounds of pearls around there neck. No wait- maybe those are tiny airbags.

      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?
