I Miss the Old Days

I saw one of these a few times in Austin in the '60s, and once I even saw it in Town Lake.  I don't know if LBJ was the driver, however.

I'd settle for a ride in it.

Johnson loved playing that prank on guests at the LBJ Ranch, especially after he’d had a Cutty Sark or two.

I saw one of these in action at Lake Altoona in Georgia in the mid-'60s.
And while we're on the subject of cool one-of-a-kind cars from the 1960s, I also saw a Chrysler turbine engine car driving around our neighborhood in Marietta, GA.

I saw pictures of the Chrysler Turbine, but I never saw the actual auto.
