Cool Picture Of The Week

(click on image for larger version)
I came upon this recent image on the internet earlier today, just in time for the first Cool Picture Of The Week.

A 1958 Lone Star Meteor awaiting someone to fix it.

"The fiberglass boat that's made like a car", says an old company description.

Thanks to the folks at the Classic Glastron Owners Association Forum, I learned these wonderful 15 foot, 485 pound vessels were produced from 1956 to 59 and are highly desirable by classic boat enthusiasts.

It even has eyes! I wonder which Superhero would have used this in a transatlantic mission?

The rear edges of the fins have cleats for water skiing ropes and the craft also includes a "remote control mount."

It doesn't say where the sealed atomic batteries go, however.
