When Aristo-Craft first made their streamlined observation passenger car, the shell was bright aluminum but the end was plastic. As I understand, later versions of the new observation cars were all aluminum, leaving lots of plastic end pieces left over. Someone at A-C took two of these end pieces put them together and mounted them on a motor block. The Eggliner was hatched.

Despite howls of protest from the nitpickers, it was an instant success. Aristo-Craft continues to make new paint schemes and they sell well.
