If you mean
Beware recognisable as a flying device
Have a look of killing the occupants when used.
Then not I can think of.
They are called lawn darts.
Gene Winfield is essentially my next door neighbor and I know him (and his work) well. He is a master metal worker and I've seen stuff in his shop that you'd swear was machined from billet on the "show side", but flip it over and you can see clearly it's been welded and hammered into shape by hand.
The Reactor (the green car second from the top, above) is in front of his shop right now. Saw it yesterday.
That said, custom cars, much like custom Harley's, are called "lead sleds" for a reason. Function is a distant consideration to form, and that's exactly the opposite in aircraft design.
I do support Gene's annual car show with a formation flyby though, so I manage to blend airplanes and custom cars every now and then.
This is as close as I can find:
One of the Hollywood car customizers built a Smyth Sidewinder which won a Lindy at EAA Airventure. I'd have to guess early to mid '90's? I'll look when I get time.
The second car in your lineup looks a lot like the Volante flying car.
Incidentally, when I first met KP Rice some 30-40 years ago, his Volante design was originally a canard. It has since morphed into a conventional configuration.
But the bling is all inside
I did not know they made a sewerage plant that could fly.
Amazing what hot air can do.
Hang on to those thoughts an ya can have your own sewerage plant , when ya grow up .
...and here we go.
You can get away with bullshit like that but if I reply in kind I'm in violation of some forum rule. ...this group is as bad as CNN.
All the Rutan planes are. It’s just we have mainstreamed them.
I will never be able to afford a sewerage plant. I have morals.
Back on topic, the SUV for the skies! (Allegedly):
Some fun stuff has popped up. That chicken looks like it could engage some kids into maybe liking airplanes, and the flying car is cool.
Separate names with a comma.
