    I'd settle for Aunty May's 1950 Delage D6.



    Hers was burgundy with cream calf upholstery.

    It does, but perhaps just an admirer of well up holstered rear ends?

    1941-Chrysler-Thunderbolt-3q.jpgChrysler Thunderbolt, 1941. Photo: Michael Furman.With its smooth, aerodynamic body shell; hidden headlights; enclosed wheels; and a retractable, one-piece metal hardtop (an American first), this stunning roadster hinted that tomorrow’s Chryslers would leave their angular, upright, and more prosaic rivals in the dust. Dramatically modern, the five Thunderbolts built were critically-acclaimed, but a high price tag deterred buyers. Some of the Thunderbolt’s advanced features found their way into post-WWII production Chryslers.

    OK, not a lot of racing with this one....I know...

    ^Gotta love it, a Ford spinner coupe cruised past us on the weekend. No way could I ever understand or desire one of those in the past, I wanted a 34 or a 39.
    But now I see it differently, I'd enjoy it.

    The Mazda's provided really remarkable power for their package size. I recall examining the Kudzu's at Sebring during the GTP era, and the engine was absolutely dwarfed by the transaxle.

    "fuel sipping..."

    There's a guy up the road with an RX7 drift car that he occasionally takes for a quick fang up and down the hill after he's been fettling it. I followed it one time in my little hatchback and I recon I could have disconnected my fuel pump and run my motor just on the amount of unburned fuel hanging in the air from Nev's exhaust.

    ikr, wankels are little known for fuel mileage

    when it won, there was a quite severe fuel economy rule in place

    the second place car was hamstrung by the fuel allownce and for the final three hours had to be short shifted to ensure it could finish, 7.4 liter v12 brute, silk cut jagular from tom walkinshaw's shop

    mercedes actually had a chance to win, until michael schumacher spun the sauber built car off track ultimately finishing fifth, ten laps down

    Pardon my ignorance, please, John: Aside from a really cool car having cool mods (headlight bezels, vented fenders, etc.) that make it even cooler, what makes it 'rather special'?
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    Since I just finished reading Virgil Exner's biography the temptation to post this was powerful.

    John, thanks for posting # 10989 - the first car I remember my parents driving was, indeed, a Studebaker.
