Which, the concept car or Supercar? Swiggy's pushing 60, so you can't be too far on either side of that and...

... Yeah, you're old. ;-)

That would put you right about my age. I was born in 57. My brother an I used to watch the show every time it was on: right after the news.

For some reason, it doesn't seem to be popular with the young set because it was filmed in black and white.

You've got to be around Swiggy's age. He'll be 60 in August.

Unfortunately most concept cars ended up going to the bailer for recycling. I'll have my cousin look and see what he can find out about it.

He came through! It's a 1958 Ford X-2000. It was a concept car made at 3/8 scale. About 10 years ago, an English auto enthusiast actually built one. It makes the rounds at all the cat shows these days.

For info on it, here's a good site, it just Google 1958 Ford X-2000 and you'll find other articles about it.

Now I have an idea to shoot for: trying to make some of those old concept cars into a reality.

Not a problem. He's busy trying to get on the leaderboard right now. Only 4000 points more and he'll snag the bottom rung. He'd hoped to make it by Saturday, but looks like he'll get there sooner. He replied on another comment here.
