  1. We know the time it must have taken to find and then format each image the same size for a visually pleasing post. Damn nice work, ExTex !

    Some of those are really nice, I wonder why they never made it to the showroom floor?

    The 57 Diablo, Caddy Cyclone, Olds Rocket – love ’em. That Merc D524, man, that looks like it had leg room and then some. (I’m tall, leg room in cars has always been a bitch).

    The 58 Ford X2000, where the heck are the headlights? Those two tiny eye-shaped ovals at the left and right of the grill?

    • Truthfully, I got these from an email via my cousin. I’m a tall person too, and considering all the cars and trucks I’ve owned, the Studebaker Lark series had the most legroom. I owned two of these.

  2. I knew about half of these. The Cadillac Cyclone is still owned by GM, and kept at the Design Center. I read a ‘driver’s report’ on it a couple of years ago, and except for the ridiculous bubble canopy, it was quite a driveable car.
