A Gear Head’s Dream Kitchen Begins With These Appliances

In the wake of the White House’s Detroit bailout, we needed a reminder of why we should have any good thoughts about American automakers. Well, we got it in the form of these awesome kitchen appliances by Radi Design, made to resemble the exterior of a beautiful 1954 Ford Thunderbird.

They’re a few years old, but these sleek retro toys are still cool – just look at the analog dials on that blender! Personally, though, I want the grill (above). This bailout is still tragic, but at least from these designs you can see there was some point in history when U.S. carmakers were innovative and took pride in their work. Let’s hope that day comes again.
