I know of two great secondary sources on Donald's car. The first is
"Donald Duck in This Car of Mine" (in Swedish, despite of the title)
by Karl-Erik Lindkvist in Swedish Donaldist fanzine NAFS(k)uriren #20.
The other is a Norwegian special on cars in the world of Donald Duck:
"Duckmobiles -- p<aa> hjul med Donald Duck & Co." by Geir Hasnes and
Arne Asphjell. What do you want to know about the car?

I used "Feathry" from memory, but then I found it, and changed to the
correct spelling "Fethry". He originated in comics from the Disney
Studios ("S-coded stories") drawn by Al Hubbard. Those stories were
made in the USA, but were only published abroad. I don't know if they
were published in any of the non-US English-language markets, or only
in translations. Anyway, some S-coded stories have actually appeared
in the US after all, like the Fethry one I already mentioned: S-82090
in WDC 509 (drawn by Kay Wright, I think).
