You’ve probably never seen this car and probably never will again. It’s a 1961 Ford Thunderbird CONCEPT car. In the days of future ‘concept’, the hover home and 6 slice toaster, the auto industry got in on this. The future. Some of those things happened but I’m still waiting to take a jet pack to work. Funny in the 50′s is was about ‘The Household Of The Future’, just a few years later we got the ‘Pet Rock’. This car is more akin to the Batmobile than anything we have today. I’d still like to own it! Heck I’d liek to even see it. Hope they tour it!

It’s up for auction in a month. There’s still time to bid!
