I suspect the designer of that airship thing used to watch Thunderbirds as a kid.

The 60s era Thunderbird 2 design still looks more elegant than that airship monstrosity, however.

I can picture it~~~~~

Shemp in said automobile with one perhaps two blonde floozies' and his "boys" in the back. All armed to the gills with Thompson machine guns dressed in pin-striped suits drinking boot leg hooch. Not the cheap shit made using car radiators but the good stuff from Cuba.

In Florida of course.

Of course! We'd go down the street nice and slow, so everyone can see my importance, and I'd toss silver dollars to the little ragamuffins and make them happy.

It may have looked ok in the water with the wheels submerged, but when you drove it down the street, people would point and laugh and call you an idiot. And rightly so.

My father steers our 1966 Rambler Classic station wagon through Sequoia National Park's Tunnel Log in this Kodachrome slide I took on our summer vacation in July 1967. ...
A sweet ride for the kids in the back.

The proper comparison is not with the Corvette, but with one of today's sport fertility vehicles. :)
Igotta tell ya, that really catches my eye. I'm glad they didn't spoil it with a Low Bridge warning.
