Makingthe statement that some auto's are sculpture, they feature some beauties in the slide show. Bit of irratation to log-in first, but... it's worth the bother.

'35 Stout Scarab, '35 Auburn Boattail, '36 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic, '38 Talbot Lago, '39 Delahaye Cabriolet, '41 Chrysler Thunderbolt, '48 Tatra, '57 Ferrari 625/250 Testa Rossa and others. A really good read, and slideshow.
