Retrofuturistic flying Oldsmobile Electro 5000 (...how’s that for a tongue twister?)

Straight from the not-so-distant past where we believed in a future of flying cars, Tim Henderson delivers us this delightful flying Oldsmobile. This classic car has been retrofitted to hover and modified with a variety of upgrades. My favourite part usage here is the worm gear in the front, used to simulate a Tesla coil.

While cars like this have shown up in science fiction since the 1950s and before, I feel it needs a tad more Howard Stark, Steve Rogers, and Bucky Barnes, as we see in the Stark Expo scene from Captain America: The First Avenger where Howard Stark shows off something very similar.
