Space Car, Auburn Rubber, USA,
In a time of Jet-powered airplanes and extreme streamlining of all household items, the cars themselves got much sleeker, and aerodynamics started to appear.

This toy represents this aera well, and reminds me of some of the advertisments of the 30ies and 40ies - largely promoting this design of the future...

Tatra automobile, advertisment,
Switzerland, 1930's
Anual Motor Show magazine, USA,

Streamlined car and bus, paper cut-outs,
USA, 1930's


  1. The Tatra was the ultimate streamlined car, absolutely beautiful. One went on sale at an auction in Australia about 18 months ago, must have fetched a good price!

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. They were indeed beautifull cars !
