    I didn’t know the Jetsons even OWNED a cat.

    It looks a little like the HL10 that Steve Austin “flew.”

    I’m a concept baby from the same year and am equally dated. Tail fins have a tendency to do that.

    Flying kitten car!  Is that Pete Campbell in the beige suit?

    What were they thinking… that thing is only three feet long! It would be WAY to small for today’s super-sized Americans, but I bet the gas mileage was amazing!

    /sarcasm

  8. ChickieD  for the win! But in reality, you strapped one of these on each of your feet.

      Seriously though, I remember lusting on concepts like this as a kid. Stimulated a later career in graphics and design (no Jetsons harmed). They did serve a purpose in many unpredictable ways. Now, they’re retrofuture and I still love ‘em.

    Okay, just consider how expensive that one-off glasshouse would be at full size…

    It’s like a cross between an Edsel and a DynaSoar.

    For kittens.

    Was every man in America wearing perfectly fitted suits back then?

    •  Um, yeah, custom tailoring was pretty much the norm back then, for anyone even remotely white-collar. Even the lowest-rung cubicle farmer in 1957 would’ve at least had his trousers hemmed and his waistline and sleeves fitted.

      I’m hardly a dinosaur, and I can remember when, if you went to buy a suit, the trousers had no hems.
