Looking at cars that never were

Let’s hop on the FuturLiner bus and take an
online cruise to a virtual car show like no
other.

GM first started using the FuturLiners in
the 1940s to promote their Parade of Progress.
The Parade of Progress was started again in
1953.

Although the FuturLiner was built for GM we
will look at different makes also. The only
thing these cars have in common is that none
of them made it into production.

So here are some cars you may not have seen
for your consideration.

We’ll start with the 1951 Buick LeSabre.

Seen a 1952 Chrysler D’Elegance before?

Or an unkown year Mecury D524?

In 1953 Ford showed this X-100.

A 1955 Lincoln Futura.

The very strange-looking 1958 Ford X-2000.

The 1959 Cadillac Cyclone is another strange
one.

And to end with something different, how
about a video from the 1920’s that tries
to predict what the future will look like.

I’m glad the prediction for the year 2000
was so far off. I can’t see me wearing a
crown and a robe with a utility belt.

Who says the 50’s were boring?
Comments are always welcome.

    The coming ‘rocket’ age certainly wasn’t lost on the imaginations of the designers of these things! The X-2000 is bound to show up in one of my nightmares, I am sure!

  3. Greetings, Can I grab that photo and employ that on my site?

    civic engagement,
    feel free to use anything posted here.

    One man and his Mustang,
    can’t argue that. Some of them look better than some of our new cars.
