Handling / Story:

Take the ride of your life with “Boss Ket” on General Motors Parade of Progress….

GM`s Parade of Progress gave life to scientific and technological wonders through live demonstrations to audiences all over North America. Launched in 1936 by Charles “Boss Ket” Kettering the shows traveled in futuristic vans originally introduced as Streamliners and later redesigned as the unique Futurliners. This is the story of the people, the shows and the vans that wowed America from 1936 until 1956, and traces the whereabouts of the surviving Futurliners.

Then team up with Don Mayton`s restoration team to experience – A Futurliner Returns

 

Not your ordinary restoration story… this is about a truly monumental restoration performed by a group of mostly retired amateurs on an volunteer basis. The end result produced the only surviving GM Futurliner restored to near original specifications currently in existence. If you have ever restored a vehicle, or are thinking about doing one… this is a must read !
