50+ years of Air Suspension

Air Suspensions have been the big deal in the VIP tuning scene for some time now. It recently blew-up here in the States with companies like UAS, BOLD World, Airrunner and Roberuta. Some will remember the mini truck days where hydraulics were the hot choice for suspension. But many will not know Air suspension were first test way back in 1957. Here is a rare image of a OEM air system on a Chevy. I found this at work in a 1957 Motor Trend. Yes, we have hella magazines laying around dating way back in the days.

This proves that there are no new ideas in this world. Just redesigned, repackaged and marketed to appeal to specific generation.
