I just received this picture in an e-mail of unusual vehicles.  I know nothing else about the source.  I think it is, at best, a concept or mockup, and may just be an amusement park ride.  Anyway, anybody recognize it?


That was an attraction in a London exhibition, on the theme of 'the house of the future' and how we'd live then.



Hello All,

Expanding on Dan's post a bit, this mock-up design was called the Aerocar of AD 2000, and was part of the 1928 Ideal Home Show in England, which I think was organised by the "Daily Mail" newspaper. 

The photo that shows it from the rear reveals that there's a horizontal propeller at the back. By working in tandem with the swiveling prop at the front, the Aerocar was supposed to be a VTOL craft.   

Cheers,
Paul
