'Flying Saucer' Buses (1950)

I found the book Do You Remember Technology? at a used bookstore this weekend. It included this Science and Mechanics cover from the December, 1950 issue. Flying saucer buses? Maybe not the most practical cover for, "The Magazine That Shows You How," but certainly paleo-futuristic.

I love this pic and have it framed on my office wall. I had a link to a whole gallery of these covers, but can't find it now. But I did rediscover these PF gems you might like:
