Concepts from Future Past: 1970 Holden Torana GTR-X

Concepts from Future Past: 1970 Holden Torana GTR-X
One of the best looking cars to ever surface from Australia has to be the Holden Torana GTR-X. Designed to be a low-production sports car for the 1970 model year, the two-seater had a sublime long-nose, a short-tail design that would have been in good company with the Chevy Corvette, Datsun Fairlady/Z, and the Mazda RX-7.

Concepts from Future Past: 1969 Holden Hurricane
Holden showed of the beautiful Holden Torana GTR-X concept car in 1970, but the Australian car company first created the Holden Hurricane, a concept car that debuted in 1969. The experimental car was Holden’s first concept car and had a distinctive wedge shape with a total height of just 38 inches.

The 1970 AMC AMX/3 Was a Supercar from The Makers of the Pacer
AMC (American Motors Corporation) is best remembered for its strange, quirky and oddly loveable 1970s cars like the Gremlin and the Pacer. But it also made some sportier cars, like the Javelin and its muscular cousin, the AMX.

Concepts from Future Past: 1970 BMW 2002 Tii Garmisch
Throughout the years, BMWs have had certain design elements which are pretty universal – from the blue, black, and white round hood badge to some kind of kidney-shaped grille. One of the more interesting BMW designs I’ve ever seen is the BMW 2002 Tii Garmisch, a one-off vehicle designed by Italian firm Bertone for the German automaker.

Concepts from Future Past: 1970 Nissan 126X
Maybe it’s because it was my childhood, but I still feel like the late 1960s and 1970s produced the greatest concept car designs ever. There were lots of wedge-shaped sports coupes with dramatic lines, space-age cockpits, and a complete lack of practicality.

Rare 1970 Ferrari Modulo Concept Car Sounds Off
The 1960s and 1970s gave us some of the coolest looking concept cars of all time. The streamlined wedge-shaped cars were my personal favorites, like the Lamborghini Marzal, the Toyota EX-III, and this gloriously futuristic machine, the 1970 Ferrari Modulo 512.

This LEGO Plymouth Superbird is the LEGO Kit We Deserve
One of my favorite car designs of all time has to be the 1970 Superbird. Plymouth’s crazy muscle car was just so fantastically over the top with that massive wing out back, and a sharpened grille that looked ready to slice its way through the air.

Continuation Boss 429, Boss 302, and Mach 1 Mustangs Announced
If you ask a bunch of Mustang fans what the best-looking year was for Ford’s pony car, about the only thing most of them will be able to agree on is that it’s not the Mustang II from the malaise era.

That Time Chevy Made a Batmobile Corvette

That Time Chevy Made a Batmobile Corvette
The Batmobile that ended up in the late ’60s Batman TV series was a highly customized 1955 Lincoln Futura. But there was also a chance it could have been a Chevy Corvette. According to Randy Leffingwell’s 2012 book Corvette Sixty Years, before the show went into production, the show’s creators apparently approached General Motors’ designers to create their take on the Dynamic Duo’s ride.

Concepts from Future Past: 1970 Evinrude Rooney Lakester
What goes together better than dune buggies and boating? If you said, “peanut butter and chocolate,” then I’d agree, but a close second is the dune buggy and boat thing. And, instead of all the compromises inherent in a typical amphibious vehicle, (I’m looking at you, Schwimmwagen), why not temporarily mate the two vehicles, but let the buggy be a buggy and the boat be a boat?
