    What's the second?

    The last one is a Peel, an actual production car.

    This looks more like a bubble gum machine.

    I'd guess that thing was built by the same dudes who build that thing in the attachment. If we go that far, there is another bubble, that cyclops trike seen in Mad Max.

    I also found three more recently. I will add them and this lunar thing to the list tomorrow. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1382979818.975226.jpg

    #20 is a Starbird. The bricks are his Wichita, Kansas shop and I sorta remember having the model that said Starbird on it. Hope that helps.

    I updated the list, added names/credits where you guys could help, took out the DeDia150 as it is apparently not a bubbletop, fixed pics, added prototype cars.

    Keep them comming!

    WOW....good thread with lots of really cool ideas and builds.
    Also a good example of what makes this hobby of ours so great, as in different strokes for different folks !!
    I personally never cared for the bubble tops, but they show a great insight into a really different concept.
    Thanks for posting...I did enjoy looking at all the pics....

    Update.

    Seems that almost all those I have actually known are the ones worth knowing. I'm scared to find out what the 80ies spawned.

    My favorites are the Jeffries Mantaray, Roth's Beatnik Bandit and Cushenberry's Silhouette - built models of all three when I was a kid.

    I think out of the 40 that are on the list, Mantaray is in the last 5 for me. I just can't stand it.
