I hope there's a blue LED making a "beam" of the water flow :) - Eivind

Fins! - Ken Morley
Another piece of evidence that cars evolved from boats. - Eivind
Cadillac SR-71 - Big Joe Silence
Eivind, or maybe sharks. I like the way Joe thinks. - MoTO Moca Blend
That view must a forced perspective, 'cuz I don't remember any pseudo-thrusters THAT big. Rocket-inspired design treatments were what the late 50's were all about. Flash Gordon and all that. (You know, that era when rockets in airless outer space left jet trails n'such.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
They were actually pretty big: http://www.carstyling.ru/resourc... The front of the car is even more SR-71 like: http://blog.hemmings.com/wp-cont... - Ken Morley
I saw a really strange pickup truck this morning and didn't have a camera. Custom built from an El Camino pickup, corvette in the back, lots of fins. - Greg GuitarBuster
Wow, that's a challenge to try to picture in my mind. I'm guessing a lot of Bondo was used? - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
LOTS of Bondo and custom metal work. I suspect that it's a new project at House of Hotrods in Mansfield, TX, which is only a couple of miles from where we spotted it. http://www.txhouseofhotrods.com/ - Greg GuitarBuster
"An early version of a crash avoidance system was the Cyclone's radar-sensing technology that provided the driver with information on an object ahead, including distance to the object and stopping distance, both measured in feet." pretty futuristic for 1959! - Big Joe Silence
Wow. I guess this wasn't a production model then! Pretty cool in a retro sort of way. Now if someone just plugged an afterburner into each of the tail "ports"... to the MOON, Alice! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Not many people remember that the show "Time Tunnel" was loosely based on a time machine Howard Hughes constructed in the 1940s - http://www.cracktwo.com/2012...

It's made of wood! - Ken Morley
a what now? - MoTO Moca Blend
oh ... - MoTO Moca Blend
I'm guessing it made a functional submarine. I mean, his wooden airliner was a reasonably good ground-effect craft. - Steel Penguin Slippy

"The General Electric Building at 570 Lexington Avenue and 51st Street in mid-town Manhattan is a 50 story high Art Deco skyscraper designed in 1931 by John Walter Cross and Eliot Cross of the architectural firm of Cross & Cross. It rises 640' high. The building was originally designed for the Radio Corporation of America and called the RCA Victor building but is was deeded to the General Electric Corporation while it was still under construction." - Ken Morley
"The base contains elaborate masonry work, architectural figurative sculptures. The curved main entrance has a corner clock with the famous script GE logo across the face. Above the clock a pair of silver forearms jut out from the building. Each hand grasping the end of a zig-zagged object. The crown of the building is unique. An intricate elaborate interwoven stone sculpture representing radio waves wraps around all four sides of the tower." - Ken Morley
"The General Electric Building has been designated a New York City Landmark and added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 28, 2004. " - Ken Morley
