Automobiles of the Future
My favorite part of the auto show is the concept car. Over the years I have seen quite a few interesting cars and I know that around my neck of the woods, this type of book would fly off the shelves.
This is such a fun book and my car culture public would get a kick out of this. The kids might even think it was fun. I love looking the future from the past. You could make a nice argument around here for keeping this little beauty. However, for kids nonfiction, I want something that would be more modern as concept cars are all about the future.
I would hang on to this treasure for a display. It’s a keeper for nostalgia, but not for a kid section.
This book is a lot of fun, and I really enjoy the built-in shopping carts in the Runabout. The only drawback is on wet days, do you really want to use a mucky cart?
Nuclear power! 500 MPH cars! This is awesome!
What a great book! Love it, and love the idea of keeping it for display. You wouldn’t want a patron to “accidentally lose” that book.
Plutonium-powered cars. What could go wrong?
We always seem to see the future through the lens of the present. This is a good example: these are mostly space-age versions of 1960s cars.
Mary: I recommend the blog “Paleofuture” for similar “looking the future from the past” things.
I really want a car with a pointy front end for my morning commute….
Apropos of nothing, “Irwin Stambler” is one heckuva name.
