    Thread: Space Age styled cars - Retro Futurism

    1. 06-22-2008 09:02 PM #51
      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?

      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.


      Here is a better example:



      Looks very Space Age to me.

      The Auto Union Type C Streamliner looked quite futuristic.

      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.
