Aero Misfits

Hello -

Found this :

Misfits roundup, 1962 at Hemmings Blog: Classic and collectible cars and parts


Quote:
In our research on the history of the Jabro last week, we came across a mention of Ed Alsbury’s mid-engine Jabro appearing in another issue of Mechanix Illustrated, a few years later in April 1962. Indeed, we had a copy of that issue in our collection and discovered a gold mine of oddities to go along with it. Normally, MI dedicated just a page or two every month to some unusual automobile – an Eastern Bloc miserymobile or some sort of homemade contraption – but it appears the magazine had a backlog of such stories and the editors decided to have a blowout this issue.

Too bad Covington passed away before it should have taken off. They hope to find the others.
El Tiburon, beautiful. Not Hyundai's.

Very cool cars botsapper,I especially like the one from 1917 - the Golden Submarine,in its "Silver" incarnation also called "stick rod", That car is by far the sweetest ride ever. The Shark is very cool,way ahead of its time..

The "Shark" rear end vs the VW 1L concept. Hmmm.

I'd like to know where the Covington windshield came from.That would be a $3,000 dollar piece of glass today.
