There's a museum in Nashville, TN which I'm hoping to visit that may very
well have both of those. Check out this fine collection:

They have a Messerschmitt that looks like what you're talking about. Pretty
much a WWII fighter cockpit on wheels.

I remember seeing one of those. Heinkel made 'bubblecars' too. The reason for
their style of construction was simply cost though.

Yup, the "Mess" on that page is the one they have at the museum. The Trident
looks frightening, but who doesn't love the Urkelmobile? I actually saw one
of those at an antique tractor show of all places.


Ooh! Sporty! Looks kinda like a shoe...

Funny things. I have seen at least one in real life. They have a very dedicated
owners club I gather.

If the Ford Pinto can find a legion of followers, why not?
