    Hi Guys,

    Like to see pictures of Fins and wings and cool artistic designs made out of them , people that are inspired by them ( I am ) , what do you have.....What have you seen or know about them.
    Thought this could be an interesting topic.
    American Fifties cars have the name but In europe they also had finned or winged super cars here the B.A.T from Italy.

    Ben

  8. I'd have to say 59-60 Cadillacs. Back in the day the ultimate American car to have.

    '57, 58 Chrysler De Soto and '59 El Camino for me - but then I have one and had the other so maybe I'm biased....

    The car that started it all. The artist's concept gives the full effect
