IT'LL NEVER GET OFF THE GROUND
WETHERSFIELD, ENGLAND: Though it hasn't got a name, this unusual auto is causing quite a stir in Wethersfield, England. U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Edward H. Risher seems to have carried the "Do-It-Yourself" craze to extremes in this car. Beginning with a Ford Anglia chassis, Col. Risher added, among other things, a cut-down Chevrolet hood, Austin Bantam wheels and the rear windshield from an American Ford. The crowning touch, however, came in the form of two wing tanks from a T-33 jet trainer.
