“Bubble” Top Auto (Apr, 1946)
“Bubble” Top Auto
Anticipating that cars of the future will have all-around vision, George Bartell of Detroit built a streamlined automobile with a transparent plastic top similar to an airplane gun turret or “bubble” canopy. Named the “Hollywood Streak,” the car is 48 inches high, 60 inches wide and 140 inches long from bumper to bumper. It is powered by a 100-horsepower motor.
