Regular Core77 readers will remember that I was obsessed with Preston Tucker's unusual design for a 1940s pickup truck with only half a cab:

I freaking love it. It looks like something you'd have seen in Car Styling magazine in the '90s. It would put a smile on my face if I saw an electric version of this zipping around in a convention hall or an airport terminal.
