    Background: Hundreds of automobiles enthusiasts where on hand saturday (May 1) for the National Hot Rod and Custom Auto Show in the Bronx Borough of New York City.

    The Kingsbridge Armory, where the show was held, was crammed with some 250 exhibits. Among them were the "Wing-Foot Express," a record-breaking jet car; the "Road Agent," a futuristic vehicle that had a bubble top and built-in television; and the "Strip Star," built for speed.

    There was also something called the "Little Deuce Coupe," and a production called the "King T," which post 30-thousand dollars to build. The ultimate in expensive motor transportation was something called the "Ultimas," a custom job that cost 150-thousand dollars. The "Ultimas come with built-in television, a bar and a telephone.
