    1939 Plymouth. (Note the Goodyear white rubber tires.)

    (From The Old Car)

    From C. F. Reese ·(Via The Old Car) : October 3, 2011 at 8:19 pm
    "This 1939 plymouth with plexiglass top was made for the 1939 World’s Fair. It was painted with 16 coats of mother of pearl paint. The interior was all white leather dyed to match the exterior. The floor mats and pedals were all white rubber. The piping on the trim was done in white leather which turned gold with time. The interior upolstery was done by Dewey Fairfield who worked for Briggs. Dewey later purchased the car from Chrysler for $300.00. Dewey was my grandfather. He replaced the plexiglass top with a permanent black vinyl top and upsolstered the headliner with a mouse grey leather and black piping. Dewey drove the car for a number of years. My parents were dating and in high school at that time. They drove the car to their 1941 high school prom."

    This rad Lincoln belonged to none-other than designer Raymond Leowy.
    (He had a second one built for his wife.)

  21. Starbird's "Shark", 1957 Cadillac Brougham. It was built so that the top could be interchanged and driven as a roadster, hardtop, or a bubbletop.

    However, if I'm not mistaken I believe that bubble was later incorporated in Darryls "Starbird 2000" Thunderbird so I guess the Cadillac now only has the removable hardtop.

    Lot's of redundancy on this thread already, but here's a nice shot of the Cosma-Ray.

    Was going to say...then I thought...almost hit the like button...but. I don't know maybe if I could see the whole car..but I'm leaning more towards a bad acid trip as the words that best describe the thoughts on this car..damn..now I can't pull myself away from looking at it.
    I do really like the old Sunliners though...
