From the Heart, the Conclusion

An intimate, at-home repast sounds like an enjoyable, low-key alternative to a fancy Valentine's dinner on the town, doesn't it? At least until this 1947 version of meals-on-wheels rolls up to your door. A cross between the Dymaxion Car and the Wienermobile, this vehicle would certainly turn heads even in the neighborhood of 'compact, servantless homes' envisioned by Men Who Plan Beyond Tomorrow.

  1. I am *fascinated* by vehicles retro-fitted for another use than perhaps the original intended use. Kinds of like that old book called "The Trolley Car Family". If only we had more people actually building cool stuff like that, driving it to our homes, then serving us dinner.

    1. I'm glad this post caught your fancy, Alison. I shall check into The Trolley Car Family—it sounds like an interesting read.

      Thanks for your comments!
