33 Dietrich Conv Sedan - one of only a handful produced.  Odd set of tires and (very unusual on a Dietrich) painted headlight and parking light shells.  Over the years I have seen one or two LeBarons done that way but never a Dietrich.  The photo appears to be of when the car was new or nearly so.

I would think the Lee of Conshohocken tires to be the second set - clothes strike me as later too.

1931 V12, C20. I recall it belonged to Black Hawk when it was restored by Mike Fennel, about 1986


This car seems to have inspired the proportions of the most popular "rat rod" style, except that the Voisin is a complete automobile. What an amazing car.

Here is a complete history: Fageol Supersonic - Kustomrama


Hemmings did a very solid write up on this which explains quite a bit.  No wonder that car has always been so confusing.

A pair of Auburn Speedsters. The 35/36 Speedster is one of my favorites. Besides the great styling, the supercharger, 2 speed rear end, outside pipes, tachometer are all great prewar features. I guess the only thing missing would be an exhaust cutout like the Duesenberg. I know they are listed in the Cord accessory catalog but not sure about the Auburn.


I would say (but not sure) the earlier Boattail is now owned by Randy Ema
