Favorite Cars of the 20’s & 30’s

November 7, 2008

There is a beauty in automobile design. The shapes and elongation of the 1920’s & 1930’s are by far my favorites. See some of the best below…

    Many say the Talbot-Lago (teardrop) was the most beautiful car ever made, more than even the Bugatti Atlantic.
    There are said to be 5 remaing Teardrops left in the world, but those are just estimates.
    You chose the greatest of examples portraying the renaissance of car design of those days that have never been seen since.

    It’s wonderful to see such designs as the Delahaye & Talbot Lago cars of that era.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if car designers actually designed their wares to be attractive rather than such awful things as most are currently designing?

    Few are worse than most, there are few elegant vehicles, even the likes of Lotus, RR and the Italians are not attractive.

    Why is elegance of style a thing of the past?
