Pretty cool cars. And I'm not even much of a car guy.

Mmm. Glorious designs from the start of the gas-guzzler era. Let's hope the electric and hydrogen car people show a little of this vision too.

I'd like a car that runs on steam. Water is plentiful, eh?

I'm still convinced that Harley Earl was obssessed with penis, as though it were the greatest thing ever and he wanted to show it to everyone.

This probably also explains America's infantile lust for cars that look like penises.
