    L29 CORD CRASH == Frank Lloyd Wright?

    ps regarding millions in repairs, that always happens when the government is involved, no matter how simple the problem.

    L29 CORD CRASH == Frank Lloyd Wright?

    Well if it was Frank Lloyd Wrong's car the roof probably leaked. Wright's major flaw was that he refused to listen to his help and had an ego as big as a barn. Some of his designs were failures from the start. Falling Water needed millions in "fixes" that could have been avoided if he just listened. The cantilevered patio was in imminent danger of collapse and needed a total rebuild. His junior architects told him that it wouldn't work but he built it anyways. Many of his buildings are ahead of their time but have many leaks and other issues requiring millions of repairs. In fact there is a book about his failures. and yet Fallingwaters still stands when he was told it wouldnt last a year. It is a Masterpiece and if youve never been, you should go. Thank God he didnt listen to the naysayers! 1 cahartley reacted to this

    1936 Cord 810 Beverly

    so many of these for sale in the 50k plus range lately. Makes me wonder where this mkt is headed? Believe it or not, I had a far harder time finding a westchester then a Beverly, when I bought mine. 5 Beverlys for every Westchester I found. I dont care for the "knapsack". Think it ruins the lines of the car. Obviously my opinion...........

    Big find in the south of France

    not so sure Roger................ many need a ton of parts. Easier to start out in Europe with a much nicer car then to try and piece together a lot of rust. shipping is cheap compared with the condition of most of these cars. this is rat rod material.
