Ok, guys, here's one that will probably make you put your thinking cap on. Pictured are a pair of hubcaps, obviously for a Chrysler Airflow. Three questions:
1.These caps were unique in what way, compared to other Airflow wheel covers.
2.And, these covers were unique in how they were constructed in what way?
3. What year did they fit?

That late 1950's British Frisky's Sprint was an interesting design... kinda like USA was also trying to do... don't think I would call it attractive though... hard to believe the British were buying 10-20 HP cars at a time when Americans were buying 80 - 390 HP cars...

Did you know about the Frisky before my question?
Here's a little info about Meadows autos.
Now back to the question.

No one has stepped up yet so I'll ask a quick one.
What is this and who made it?

Yes it was Henry Ford's "Flivver" airplane. Ford after the success of his Trimotor set about having a "Every man's" aircraft designed and produced. His thought was to duplicate the Model T in the form of a cheap aircraft. It turned out to be a lousy design and with only five built it was dropped. Lindberg flew it and said it was the worst flying airplane he ever flew.
We always refer to a Model T as a Flivver but It wasn't the only "Flivver" Henry produced.

You Guys are not there yet. It's not connected to the Stout Scarab nor Chrysler. The airplane was to be for everyman. It was to be very affordable.
Will Rodgers wrote a poem about it.
I dreamed I was an angel
And with the angels soared
But I was simply touring
The heavens in a ************
If no one gets the answer by this evening I'll amaze you with the answer.
(Well, maybe not amaze you but is a interesting footnote in history)

Nope not the Stout Batwing either although it was powered by Nash engine. Good try though.
