    I remember seeing a lot of these ideas in Time, Look, and other magazines when I was growing up. I was certain some of them would go into production and, if you look closely, you will see some that seem to shape what really came along.

    See them @ BBC News - Dream Cars: Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas

    My dream car is the newest BMW model and I am really going to buy it one day.

    I recall enjoying such articles in Popular Science. Perhaps in another regard it seems Detroit lost its with these wild designs and should of had its eye more on economy and quality. Still I enjoyed seeing these and they bring back the era of excitement in seeing a new car in the neighborhood.

    What blows my mind is seeing historic plates on a car that was brand new when my oldest kid was 9 years old. It just isn't right, as in I really don't see that all of a difference between 1992 and 2017 Civics. Now put a 1952 and 1977 Plymouth side-by-side and to me its night-and-day.

    I do like the cannon, but I have concerns about over penetration in heavy traffic. I would replace it with a flame thrower.
