In the future, we’ll use metal perambulators to put our groceries in.
Here are two more images of the ‘three wheeled runabout’:

and Lastly, [the pavillion in which the exhibit was housed.](https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-fZQZBGGjf7s/V6IxNBoaPkI/AAAAAAAAU5Q/_VCW3RUYEy0prhWgY7gDOXTj6FFIKx2nwCLcB/s1600/GM%2Bexterior%2B-%2BJun.1965.jpg)
Well fallout wasn’t as off as I thought it was
These were two-wheel vehicles that GM & Ford built as experimentals. Ford built the Gyron in 1961. They kept their balance by using large gyroscopes. Legs extended from the side when the car was parked. Today, there are 2-wheeled experimentals that have the wheels located side by side.

It will be amazing! We’ll use baby carriages for grocery carts!
I’m assuming it was also supposed to be nuclear powered?
It’s funny that in this imagined future car design is totally revolutionized, but gender roles survive unchanged.
