    That car hasn't been stretched, the picture has!
    This is two pix stitched together (scanned from a magazine over two pages?) and stitched into a single image...and not very well done!

    That's a great explanation that I don't think occurred to any of us! Thanks for posting that.

    Back in the day before PCV valves when all cars had a road draft tube for crankcase ventilation.

    Yes, I did see your purple bird. I thought it helpful to see there is not any difference between both rear lengths. Darker colors can make objects appear smaller, of course. That's why Orson Welles always wore black during his latter years!

    That could very well be why it might appear longer. Good thought! The photo (itself) has not been stretched horizontally. Otherwise the wheels would appear oval not round. A photo spanning 2 pages will bleed off the edge of the paper in the gutter (center spread), leaving extra image to work with if it is cut out of a publication. (cannot say whether it was cut out or just scanned) Still, it does not appear obviously longer to me.

    I thought fender skirts were optional. If a Sports Roadster, the rear seats would have tonneau cover over them.

    And rope rear main seals that dripped oil. Has to be LA judging from the smog.

    The full movie is on You tube search by title. Interesting opening shots of late 30's Grand Prix style racers, with three interesting PA announcers. Supposedly Italy, Monaco and Gr. Britain.
    about an hour and 10 minutes long. Virginia is quite a hotty.

    It is a Frazer Nash "Mille Miglia", usually fitted with a 2-litre Bristol 6-cylinder engine

    Besides that, the model Melissa Tammerijn, isn't even old enough to be considered vintage.
