    the BN1 and BN2 are far prettier than any of the six-cylinder Healeys. side curtains and a folding windscreen (for speed!).

    eventually, i'll get around to finishing (well, starting) the restoration on the '56 BN2 downstairs. need to finish the Jaguar, first.

    My favorite Jag is the XK 120. The Cord 812 was a remarkable car for a number of reasons:
    Front wheel Drive
    Retracting Headlights
    Electrical shifting transmission.

    Unfortunately, none of these features worked very well. Cord was just a little too far ahead of the times. Good looking car though.

    There used to be a company in Pasadena I think that made replicas of Cords and Auburns. The Cord was not really very good but the Auburn was terrific. It was priced at about $40,000 n 1980. Someone should complete the set with a Deusenberg Phaeton.

    In my opinion, this is almost the most beautiful car of all time! The most beautiful is below.

    Beauty is clearly in the eyes of the beholder.



    This looks so good, it hurts.

    The problem with reproductions of classic cars is generally the tire size. I recall seeing Auburn Speedster replicas based on a Ford chassis. The original tire was a 6.5 x 16, the Ford used a 235 x 15. The proportions were thrown off. Whole car looked just a bit off.

    There is a Citroen that's sat on my route the whole time I've worked out there, 30+. Brown(GOLD?) hardtop.

    I used to work next to the Clenet factory. Clenet's are like sausages. If you like them, you don't want to see what goes in them. Let's just say that there were a whole lot of Fairmont body shells behind the factory.
