To long a nose on it. I wouldn't be able to see over it.

Taking 1930's cars and updating them seems to be the thing.

True!

The sports cars / luxury cars of the 1930's had such sleek, sexy lines. Made to glide over the road and grab attention..........

Out in CA hubby had a friend who collected cars and motorcycles...... He had a 1930's Auburn. Just gorgeous, that car. We borrowed it to drive to a friends wedding. At the reception it almost got more attention that the open bar


Not our friends car, but the same model.

Sleek, elegant. These cars don't say: "I'm aspiring!". Rather, they, in an understated way, announce: "I've arrived."

Long, long ago - when I was very, very young, and broke - I wanted to get a Jag XKE 12 cylinder hard top. This was a very sleek car that looked like a tall woman. Those days are gone as the car is far out of reach. Another dream bites the dust.
