I was mesmerized the first time I saw a 1957 Dodge Sweptside pickup. As an eight-year-old boy, I thought putting tailfins on a truck was a bold advance in design. The Sweptside inspired me to put cardboard tailfins on my bicycle, but instead of the Sweptside Dodge fins, my bike’s fins looked like cartoonish shark fins. Even so, I thought flying personal transportation was just around the corner.
