    Dream cars from the early 1950s borrowed heavily from jet aircraft styling, like the futuristic Ford FX-Atmos. Appearing at the 1954 Chicago Auto Show, the FX-Atmos featured a glass dome roof, tail fins, rocket exhaust taillights and needle-like radio antennae protruding from front fender pods. The radical cockpit had a center-mounted driver’s seat and two-passenger rear seats. Dual handgrips replaced the normal steering wheel and the dash-mounted "Roadarscope" radar screen provided highway information.
