That is as the Kiwi's say "Choice"
49 Cadillac , the slopeback ones- cant recall the correct name
40 Lincoln zephyr
And anything touched by Harry westerguard or the ayala bros...
I know this is ot but it is the car i think personally is the most beautiful car ever conceived, conceptualized, to ever be on four wheels. It resembles styling cues and such from cars during the 40's. So amazing..
The 2005 Holden Efijy:
The Holden Efijy is a concept car created in Australia by Holden. It is based around the iconic Holden FJ, the second model built by Holden. The concept is based on the Chevrolet Corvette floor pan, a 6.0 litre V8 engine with Rootes supercharger putting out 480 kW (644 hp) at a little shy of 6500 r.p.m. It rides on an air suspension system that lowers the car when the car is stopped, and also has electronic instrumentation including a multi-use display screen that disappears into the dash.
Just completely drop dead stunning! Especially for a modern concept car..
Someday i would like to build a replica of this car. I heard it can be done by modifying a 53 chevy.. someday i will find out.
Love that 49 Olds 98. Even though it has "sad eyes".
The '49 Olds Holiday, Caddy Coupe de Ville and Buick Riveria are my faves.
41 willys, 46 pontiac, 49 buick, 40 ford, 48 dodge(cause I have one)
The inspiration for my current build - timeless Streamline Moderne....
And the 1941 Hupmobile Skylark - who can argue with a Gordon Buehrig derivative?
I agree on this one but prefer the convertible. Some people actually like the Graham nose of Gordon's original.
Have to agree with the Highlander above, post # 4, on the Packards, both the Darrins and the Darrin-designed 1941-47 Clippers, the former were "radical California customs" before the term existed, the latter having "The Look" from the Detroit factory.
Always thought the '40 Cads lovelier than their heavyhanded grille from '41-on.
But they're all survivors today and that's what makes horse races.
I have two of the ones that unsigned listed.
41 Desoto 3 window build. Cpe and 41 plymouth build cpe.
How about a 41 Hollywood Graham?
Any GM sedanette
