New car ideas....

The Squba car is actually goes underwater. But notice the active grill block.

The Mazda has either super small mirrors or cameras for viewing to the rear.

The Cadillac has front wheel (fender) skirts.

The last one I think a Chrysler is just slick looking.

Warning: Nukes on Board

That B&W 5th picture in your first posting in the thread brought back a memory for me... that concept car was supposed to be powered by a nuclear reactor! It was featured in some picture book my elementary school had that I checked out several times. I mean really... <Lewis Black voice> What could possibly go wrong?!? </Lewis Black voice> That car was very cab-forward! (To allow more shielding from the nuke in the trunk.)

Yep one on the wheel, one at the ignition, and one on the shifter. Streamlining the process one mutation at a time.
