What car do you find beautiful?

Asked by lucillelucillelucille (33294points) 1 month ago

I’d have to go with a 1937 Cord
I’ve loved them since I first saw a photo but finally got a close look at one last year. I love it even more after I saw the compartment for one’s golf clubs.:D
The docent told me that the ride is not great but guess what?
I do not care :)

@kritiper – My husband likes the 1948 Buick Sedanette
I think that the style of this car lends itself to some great paint color combinations.

I have always liked the look of the Excalibur series.^

But I am and always will be a truck man.

I don’t think so, but then again I am not a car guy.

@SQUEEKY2 – I was just told that they were on a Studebaker chassis, fashioned to look like a car that was probably 40 years old at the time.
What truck would you pick?

1937 Talbot-Lago T150-C SS Coupé aérodynamique ‘Goutte d’Eau’, Figoni & Falaschi. I saw it a a car show in 1957 in Los Angeles. Here’s picture

—1937 Auburn Speedster – a cousin of the Cord. Gordon Buehrig designed both.
—Studebaker Avanti since I first saw one 30 years ago.
—Ford GT40 in Gulf livery is the quintessenitial race car in my mind. I think I had a Hot Wheels toy version and it imprinted on me.
—The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is another favorite

@Call_Me_Jay I love the Auburns as well:)
I didn’t know Studebaker made the Avanti.

@Tropical_Willie Wow, I couldn’t wait to see it today, but my phone wouldn’t pull it up last night. That is GORGEOUS!
