Random Pictures of Really Cool Cars

Recommended Posts

post-61568-143139307765_thumb.jpgOne of the coolest Crosleys ever built is this Devin Bodied owned by Richard Fahey of Ill. I would love this one in my garage

I'm going to get one of those 3 window Hupps one of these days.

My favorite or second favorite Cord of all time. Now hidden away in the middle east.

I hope you get your Hupp sooner, rather than later. They have become quite popular with street rodders. I have to admit, their sleek lines come through pretty well even when lowered and painted purple! I want to say here that I'm aware that these streamliners that I've posted to this thread are all quite conventional cars underneath and none of them rise to the quality of most of the cars on this thread. It's just that I personally find them "cool".

That is a shame. I don't know that I have ever seen one for sale. I like the Graham Blue Streak 3 windows too.

The Graham Blue Streak is a very handsome car, to be sure.

Are those 35/36? I like those and also the later ones. Convertible coupe is a pretty rare car.

Speaking of L29, another of my favorites is coming up for auction in April. The German bodies all look similar and the quality of material was fantastic. This is a Voll & Ruhrbeck body. Similar to a Cab "C" Sindelfingen bodied Mercedes.

The chrome wheels and blackwalls really set that L29 off! What a fine car.

The street rods, not so much, particularly with such a rare car.

I have never seen that car before, thanks for posting it. Ed

The Europeans really tried to clothe some great American chassis during the 1930s but they rarely "got it". That squared-off cabriolet body looks like the box the gorgeous front end came in.

The black Graham coupe is a '34 and the bluish-gray one is a '33. I found one image of a similar year convertible coupe.

The coolest one I ever came across outside of a show or museum has to be this V16 Cadillac roadster I spotted resting in a LaJolla, California garage......I am sooooo in love with this car.

Are you sure that is a V16 and not a v12? The reason I ask is that I used to know of an identicle car (model and color and condition) in Michigan but it was a V12

It is probably just me but there hasn't been a lot of interesting activity on the forum lately. I assume because of the time of year. Anyways, here is a thread to post random pictures of what you think are really cool cars. Most of mine I've posted in other places before so forgive me if you have seen them already. Here is one of my all time favorites. I do not believe any have survived. If you know what it is and not because you saw me post it somewhere else you are at the top of the hierarchy of cool car historians!

I will give you a hint and tell you that it has a crazy transmission in it.

Third from the top is most definately a Lincoln. I thought you were talking about the open hood photo that was last with the red engine. Sorry

Let's sprinkle in a couple of Brits to keep it eclectic. These pics taken at Lime Rock Park in CT this past fall...

I still would like a "T" series MG even though I understand I could probably walk faster than one...

The '34 LaSalle posted earlier was so pretty that I think it wouldn't hurt to post another. So very sleek!

I haven't heard from Brian other than that he said he had a terrible accident towing the Royale home!
