I have very fond memories of the two cars below. I had a model of the one of the left in the early 1960s. The box it came in said that this "Car of the Future would float on a cushion of air". The model kit included a short section of surgical tubing which attached to the rear of the model. When I blew on the tubing, the model rose a fraction of an inch from the table, lifted by the tiny air holes in the bottom. Cool!

The car on the right was used in the Jerry Lewis movie, Cinderfella. It was put on display in parts of the country to promote the movie. I saw it in the Atlanta area and bought an 8X10 photo.

Click on the links below and watch two videos which showcases the amazing Golden Sahara.
