Thanks. It's an interesting contemporary to Josef Ganz' Mayfly.

I wanted to post two others, but Flickr seemed to dis-allow hot-linking. You can see them here:

The Fiat's A-pillars look not rounded enough to me and that mirror is ginormous, spoiling flow probably all the way back. The ridges on the front fender tops probably aren't good for flow in x-winds. It's got kind of a Speedster vibe to it though and the silver color adds to that.

Windsplits like a shoebox Ford with a pancaked hood.

Better in black with gold or red scallops and pinstripes.

'56 Caddy hubcaps?

Cool Rolls...

I was wondering if the front wheels turn within the skirts or the skirts move.

Then I came across this.





My guess would be that they turn within.

What's the point of ≤60 seconds of still pictures and bad music? Why does Ecomodder serve up Flash™ that just gets blocked, but the link to Youtube doesn't?

redneck -- I guessed wrong, I thought it was the 1950 Muntz Jet

Because I'm to lazy to copy, log in and paste a photo into photobucket just to format and then post a picture on here.

Bad music...???

What bad music...???

I've always liked the cat-like haunches of the Thunderbolt.
