The American auto industry hasn’t been doing so well the last few decades, but we’re sure it’ll pull through. After all, it’s got American ingenuity on its side.

Take this bubble-top hot rod, for instance. There isn’t much in the way of trunkspace or a backseat, and we shudder to think of the fuel efficiency, but we’d take it in a drag race any day. According to eBay, it’s currently on the block for $71,000, but that’s a small price to pay for a piece of history.

If they hurry, we bet Ford could get this lined up for 2010.
