I'm reading Paul Ingrassia's book, Engines of Change, about the American automobile industry. And he mentions therein this concept car, the GMC 1959 Firebird III. So I googled some pics :) At first look, I see Batmobile (altho that was actually a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car). On second look, there is quite a bit of Speed Racer's Mach 5 in there, too.

This 9-finned car may well have been the ultimate tail fin car ; no doubt, the trend reached its zenith about that time, and fins had pretty much disappeared only a few years later.
