Weird Nebraska Nebraska Meets The Jetsons 


The Fascination, touted as a "Space Age Transportation Innovation" by its inventor, Paul M. Lewis, was produced by the Highway Aircraft Corporation of Sidney in 1974. The streamlined, functional design reflected a concern for efficiency and stability. In August 1974 Lewis predicted that fifty more vehicles would be completed by the spring of 1975. Unfortunately his prediction never came true. Lewis resigned as company president in September 1976 under pressure from his board of directors, who felt the company's progress had been too slow. Only three Fascination prototypes were built.
