Cadillac Le Mans

May 30th, 2017 by admin

The Cadillac Le Mans was a concept car designed by Harley Earl and developed by Cadillac.

one of four made.

Also, it’s the one missing show car last spotted in Oklahoma.

It also made its appearance in 1953 and wore a fiberglass body, just like the Corvette.

The Cadillac Le Mans was a success as a styling study, with cues appearing across the Cadillac lineup throughout the 1950s. One car even received a refresh, reemerging from GM’s styling division sporting quad headlamps and sleeker fins.

But they never directly led to two-seat Cadillac production vehicles, so they were of little use to GM once their time as Motorama dream cars came to an end.

One of the Cadillac Le Mans cars went to Harry Karl, a shoe magnate who gifted it to his wife, a statuesque blonde named Marie “The Body” MacDonald. Another was sold to a big Cadillac dealer in Beverly Hills.

One of the Cadillac Le Mans show cars was one of the stars of the Oil Progress Exhibition at the Oklahoma City airport in 1953, along with two other Motorama show cars: the Wildcat I and the Starfire. Then the Cadillac went on exhibit at Greenhouse-Moore Cadillac Chevrolet for two days during the first week of November. After Nov. 8 the car disappeared.

Ralph Marano owns every Packard concept car made, save for one—the Predictor—which is permanently displayed in the Studebaker National Museum in South Bend

January 17th, 2017 by admin

Ralph is one of the premier living Packard collectors, not just in this country, but in the world. His collection numbers 85 classic automobiles, every single one of them 100-point concours quality. If you’ve been to Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, Meadow Brook or the Glenmoor Gathering in the past two decades, you’ve run across one of Ralph’s prizes at some point, and probably more than once.

The Marano collection is one of America’s greatest. And unlike some collectors, Ralph doesn’t try to hide what he’s got. The glassed-in building in Garwood is his private museum.

Among the most sought-after Packards are those with custom-built bodies, especially from Darrin. Mr. Marano said he was the only collector to own a Packard Darrin from each of its years of manufacture, 1937 through 1942.

Mr. Marano has owned some Darrins with celebrity provenance.

In 1985, he acquired a 1942 Darrin 180 Victoria driven by George Peppard in the television series “Banacek.”

In 1989, he traded cars and cash for a ’38 Darrin that Al Jolson commissioned for Ruby Keeler.

His red ’37 Darrin 120 convertible Victoria was originally owned by Clark Gable. “Gable didn’t like its running board option, and sold it back to Darrin, who sold it to Errol Flynn,” Mr. Marano said.

Show cars were important to Packard, helping to project an image of a company able to compete with the advanced styling of larger automakers. Mr. Marano decided several years ago that he would try to acquire all of the extant Packard show cars. He now owns a 1952 Pan American two-passenger design study; the ’53 Balboa; the fiberglass-body Panther of 1954; and the 1955 Request.

1969 Ferrari 512S Berlinetta Speciale, and some ridiculous model that should never have been on the car

December 22nd, 2016 by admin

the car is good looking enough to not need her… but since when do models get on TOP of the cars? Maybe I missed hundreds of thousands of photos like this… but I don’t remember ever seeing a model on the roof of a car.

here’s the crazy part… the designer later on went on to Ghia for 3 decades and designed the Pinto and Escort.

here is something else, it was a roller… the engine wasn’t built, just looked good from the outside, so they had to pull it up the mountain for these photos with that earth mover

The photo shoot was on top of

I hope someone tells Rolls Royce prototype designers that tiny detail about streamlining the front tires… it changes the aero dymanics a lot when you turn them… aka the Stutz Blackhawk effect

June 22nd, 2016 by admin

Rolls Royce Motor Cars has unveiled a concept car that showcases what the firm thinks luxury vehicles might look like in 100 years’ time. The “Vision Next 100″ is a 5.9 metre-long zero-emission, self-driving car complete with an artificial intelligence virtual assistant and a silk sofa – but no steering wheel.

Keep in mind the following is a 360 degree video, pull it around

The Stutz effect I mentioned in the title? That’s due to what they learned when land speed racing on Daytona Beach with the Stutz Blackhawk.

At 220, it went barrel rolling… you simply can’t change the aero at that speed without disastrous effect
