That red undercarriage of the 1921 Farman A6B Super Sport Torpedo is wonderful, what a great thing to do.
Sorry another reply, these cars are well almost orgasmic - just saying.
The talent to restore these one of a kind classics is off the charts. Amazing stuff.
Have to say the Bugatti Ghia was not one of them (and I love Bugatti's!)
Wow, they ARE beautiful, thanks. Never heard of most of them, although isn’t the second to last one often called the “Mickey Mouse” car because he was sometimes depicted in cartoons driving a similar car?
If you are ever near Tacoma WA, check out the LeMay Museum. Harold LeMay was a local garbage hauler who also had a passion for collectible cars. When he died, he gave them to Pierce County WA and a museum was recently built to house and display them.
Several of the pre-war manufacturers represented here were building fighter aircraft engines by the thousands during the war: Hispano-Suiza, Isotta-Fraschini, BMW and Rolls Royce (whose famous Merlin engine powered the Spitfire and the P-51 Mustang, among others).
There’s a decent car museum in Rio Rancho, New Mexico (of all places).
The two early-fifties Chrysler Ghias on page 3 are visually similar to the newer Chrysler 300’s, to me.
Just came back from Kissimmee Fl where we saw a Meacum auto auction and was WOWed by what we saw there but NOTHING like these. Oh my.
