This Car Has Everything (Apr, 1957)
This Car Has Everything
WHEN Don Swartzwelder drives his car into a gas station the hood raises by itself, stunning the attendant and making Don moderately happy. A Fort Lauderdale, Fla., TV technician, Don has made a hobby of gooking up his ’38 Ford with gadgets until she now boasts a TV set, PA system, electrically-locked doors and gas tank cap, record player, 110-volt utility outlet, self-raising and lowering hood and fog lights that go on automatically if headlights fail. Engine is a full-race ’48 Merc, souped up to top out at 123 mph.
