Outstanding Automotives

A place for the exceptionally designed and unabashedly cool.

All righty then. To start things off, here's a Daimler sports model I
saw at a gas station in BC last week. Check out the fins on the rear
fender. I thought those went out in the 50s! But it's still an
interesting car.

And here's a blast from the past. I don't think MG is making cars any
longer--I could be wrong, of course--but I managed to catch this one
in traffic in Vancouver.

Show Low Days, the annual fundraiser for the Chamber of commerce, always had a car show until last year. This year there was a show in another location, but it was not as good as previous years—not as many cars, not as nice, some real junk. Anyway, I went today and took a few shots of the ones I liked the best, like this '31 Model A:

Cool cars--cool pix! My wife's brother-in-law restores very old
cars--he'd be fascinated by these.

From the second Studebaker shot, now we know why the back-end storage
compartment is called the "trunk."

Jaguar E Type has the reputation of 'the best production sports car'

this is local to me

Wow, that's a sweet looking car! But all the dials and switches make
me go cross-eyed. I can't imagine what they're all used for.

Is that a cassette player in the dash? Original equipment? Heh. I do love these sports cars. My neighbor when I was a kid had a collection of 12 antiques, some kept in neighbors' garages. The trust! One was a late 20s or early 1930s - similar to the one linked here- Bentley 2 seater. He also had a Stutz Bearcat (photo released to public domain by Autoworldmobilia) similar to the one linked here. I was enthralled by both, but especially the Bentley. What a monster!

Annie, those long URLs that continue on to a second line need
quotation marks on either end to hold them together.

Like so:

I tried that to no avail, must have not done it right. Oh well, probbly no one looked at it anyway!!!

I looked at it. I love that stuff. I just wish it had been better
video.

Yes, they didn't linger long enough on the '50s and '60s cars!! But it was pretty jerky, too. Maybe another visitor sometime will do better and post it.

As a kid, I loved the Buicks. I owned a '52 Super and two '57s, a Special and a Super. This is a couple of details from a '55. Four "portholes" means it's either a Roadmaster or a Century...

'55 Buick

Nice! Did Buick make a station wagon version of those models? It looks
a lot like the car my folks had when I was a little kid.

They made a station wagon in more than one model.
