All of them, I cherish the minds of creative people and the wonders they come up with. But my favourite is the Citroen DS. We had 3 at my parents home and me and dad restored one, pretty special.

I just love these creative vehicles. Wish I had a few to actually drive around. Love the streamlining. Hard to pick a favorite, but the Boat car looks fun, and several of the most streamline ones are great sculpture, and of course the Tucker is superb. There are Tuckers on display at the AACA Museum in Hershey PA. A great museum to visit. I wonder if any of the others were ever on display there.

KJER ERRT (2 months ago)
+Minds Eye Design NO WAY DUDE. UGLY IS UGLY. I HAVE SEEN A DOZEN OF VIDEOS ABOUT THE UGLIEST CARS. THEY ARE TRULY UGLY. BUT MAYBE SOME OF THEM WERE NOT UGLY AT ALL. JUST UNUSUAL.

Had I made the title Cars so Ugly they're beautiful. You'd be over saying how cool and nice looking they are. We already tested this theory several times and its proven most viewers will say the opposite of the title whether they believe it or not.

The Stout Scarab should have been #1. Built by William B Stout who designed the Ford Tri-Motor plane and why we have engine nacelles on planes today. The Scarab was the first uni-body constructed car in 1935. Really it was a minivan with a reconfigurable interior. Made out of the precursor to aluminum it will never rust. The vehicle also sported rear-wheel drive with a rear engine. The engine, like the nacelle could be dropped with the rear axle in minutes and refitted with a donor set while the owners engine/drivetrain was being worked on. If you can find his autobiography read it. Its hilarious, enlightening, and a journey of the American Dream realized. BTW he designed toys, engines, motorcycles, cars, planes, boats, trains and even a hard sided popup camper.

How did we ever think it was a good idea to let normal people purchase and operate their own personal nuclear reactors? With as often as people manage to blow up the engines in NORMAL cars, image Bubba getting his hands on a nuclear power plant and trying to crank that baby into overdrive.

So much commentaries about how you pronounce French words, trying to correct you by telling you ways to say it that aren't better that you do... Someone even put an "r" in the phonetic of "l'oeuf" :D :D :D As a French, there's three solutions here: continue to pronounce it as you want, do a quick search using translators wich give you the good phonetic, or ask to some French people; sure I'm not the only one to watch your videos ;) I know this video is months old, but I had to say it. Other than that, cool stuff dude, you have a sub (and as I said, I'm French, so my english could be a bit clumsy; sorry about that :) )

#16 is my personal favorite considering I was able to handle to exhaust 'stacks' while being HPC coated. Having also been blessed to meet the Jenkins on multille occasions. So yeah...Im pretty biased. If you want more info on the Mormon Meteor- it has been featured on Jay Lenos garage, as well as housed at the Prices Museum of Speed also in Salt Lake City.

'Boys of Bonneville' film/documentary-tells the Jenkins story with the Meteor(s) released abt 6 yrs ago, narrated by Patrick Dempsey. Highly recommended, You won't be disaapointed. $1.99

I'm surprised you did not note that the 1938 Phantom Corsair was the base used for the Batmobile in comic books of the time so in fantasy it was a secret hero's car. The other car ie the 1959 Ford nuclear did not make it to production for 3 reasons. 1) it mostly made of magnesium and titanium that at the time alone would have a sell cost of $175,000.oo 2) The nuclear pellets were about the size of a baby aspirin and 6 were sealed in the power disk that cost $375,000.oo but one would not need to get them changed out for a calculated 18,750,000 miles. 3) And the kewl thing was when you parked to go to work or home or shopping you would plug in your car to keep the electrical power grid on. So you had a car that was almost impossible to destroy unless you were in a very violent wreck. If it did happen the Nuke disk was way hard to even crack never mind bust apart so no free radical nuke fuel bouncing around. However, it would cause panic if it did get built & was in a fender bender. You would and could drive almost forever. At that time it was calculated for 750 years of what was one's normal miles per year that included going to grand mom's for Christmas or a vacation to Florida, California, Yellow Stone, The Black Hills or other. The oil and gas companies would be flat out broke in about 5 to 7 years for your total use per 2 or 3 years was 3 quarts of turbine synthetic oil ( that right now cost $5.95 per bottle ) and 5 quarts of a thicker antifreeze coolant that was also synthetic ( even now cost $9.95 per gallon ) every 2 to 3 years but no gas or oil was used. Right now and ever since th turbo pack is on so many cars and/or the use of Wankel rotary engine in Mazda cars or Suzuki motorcycles we have used synthetic oils since 1973 in some cars & motorcycles. However, we have been using synthetic oils and hydraulic oil in jet aircraft since 1950. SYNTHETIC is made from plant oils The good part was free electrical power and no more smog. The part that get's me is who griped the most about it, it was none other than California ...

Jawa is a motorcycle manufacturer in Prague, founded by František Janeček, before WWII, and it is still making motorcycles today. making cars was just a try, but they stayed into motorcycle industry.

In case anybody's wondering: #12, the Invader GT VW kit car, was not produced until the early 70's. This particular example turns up elsewhere online, and apparently is *built on* a '62 chassis.

Somehow ashame that I did not put the Persu one whitch is in my hometown,Bucharest technical museum and which I know since childhood.Allways thought that it looks funeral like.For sure it was a big step in terms of aerodynamics...but esthetically...

The Golden Submarine is quite a cool car and well worth seeing. Too bad except for the first pick, all the other images were of another car, the Thom Taylor designed/Dan Webb built tribute car, done about 10 years ago! Might be nice if you got the facts right.
Cetok01 (1 year ago)
If you grew up in the 1940's or '50s, see if you agree with me that the 1938 Phantom Corsair (#6) was probably the inspiration for that era's comic-book Batmobile. Just add a huge bat-wing sail on the back.
Minds Eye Design (1 year ago)
+Cetok01 not from that time frame but I definitely agree. Such a beautiful vehicle! Way ahead of its time!
