Good old days.

World Record For Distance Jump With A Car
First one is an Amphicat, part of a group of ATVs called AATVs, Ampibious All Terrain Vehicles. They were actually the first ATVs around.
Here's one of its brethren, an Attex 295 Wild Wolf.
Or, one of the more unique AATVs, the Coot.
Banana Splits anyone?

German spoken History of the car
When I post a new 1 in here, it isn't showing up in --> Forum --> New post.
The one and only Ghia Gilda Streamline coupé originally commissioned by Chrysler in 1955. It was fitted with a normal combustion engine for the shows and then sat in the Henry Ford museum until it purchased by a californian enthusiast who restored it and had it fitted with a gas turbine jet engine finally on the 21st century. This car *could* literally blow your socks off!

Brilliant find m8. Obrigado
How about this one :
Completed in 1953, in time for the January 1954 Motorama at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, the Firebird I holds the distinction of being the first gas turbine car unveiled in the United States (Chrysler’s first turbine-powered car debuted to the public a couple months later, in March 1954). Power came from a GM-designed GT-302 Whirlfire Turbo-Power gas turbine engine, which utilized a two-stage design incorporating both a gasifier section and a power section. Unlike a jet airplane, which uses thrust for propulsion, the Firebird concepts relied upon this thrust to drive a power turbine, which in turn was linked to a transmission that powered the driven rear wheels. Output was rated at an impressive 370 horsepower, once the gasifier turbine spooled to 26,000 RPM and the power turbine was spinning at a more relaxed 13,000 RPM. Like a conventional piston engine, idle speed of the GT-302 engine was considerably lower, but in this case that’s a relative term, as the gasifier turbine still spun at 8,000 RPM.
- Have FUN out there. -
Sadly I can only post one video at a time, so here is the second for the Firebird 1.
This video shows another GM Firebird. Version 3. A must see m8's.
