1949 Crosley Hotshot

Powel Crosley built affordable radios, invented shelving for refrigerator doors and owned a baseball team. He couldn’t master the auto industry, though. The 1949 Crosley Hotshot was America’s first sports car after World War II. It quickly earned a reputation for being small, ugly and dangerous. After three years of meager Hotshot sales, Powel Crosley got out of the car business for good.
