Preluat de pe New York Times.

When General Motors Was Dreaming

In its heyday during the 1950s, Motorama delivered G.M.'s message of postwar optimism to millions of curious spectators. The 1938 Buick Y-Job was the first such dream car.

Unfettered by concerns over the cars’ production feasibility, designers toyed with extravagant shapes, exotic propulsion systems and impractical gimmicks. Seen here is the Futurliner from 1953.

The best ideas graduated to production models, while the turbine engines and titanium body panels never made it past the pages of Popular Science. Most notable on the 1954 Buick Wildcat II are its expanded wheel wells.

As the 1950s were winding down, a changing of the guard at G.M. — when Harley Earl, the design chief, was succeeded by William Mitchell — prompted a house cleaning. To save storage costs, dozens of show cars were slated for disposal. Seen here, the 1954 Pontiac Bonneville Special.

The Firebird III, from 1958, was the third iteration of a gas turbine-powered concept car. With nine fins, it was the last dream car built by Harley Earl.

Aparent nu, doar va fi impartit in mai multe bucati si reorganizat. Oricum, toate aceste modele au ceva in comun: sunt din anii 50-60, cand GM era pe val.
