CLASSIC BEAUTY


I Braked and Stopped Quickly



When I saw this beauty on the street!






Added later: I think I found the make and model of this fabulous car!  Go here!

  3. Oh.
    When I saw the headline, I thought "That's very self-descriptive..."

    So - what make is it? Year? History?

  4. I would have too Kate. What a beauty!! I have no idea what it is (major car pleb!) but it's got amazing style. A bit 'Great Gatsby' don't you think? Well spotted indeed!!

  5. Now that's a gleaming old beauty! I also wonder what make, year, history, etc!
    Imagine tooling up and down Summit Ave in that car!

  7. I think it's an "Undo". That's what it says on the hub cap, anyway...

  10. I believe it's an Auburn. It certainly looks like some photos of the Auburn Speedster that I found when I Googled "1930s 851 car" in Google Images. Totally gorgeous. Thanks!

  14. It is very "Great Gatsby" indeed. Did you climb in and act like Daisy in GG, flinging your head back in a haughty manner and shrieking with delight?

  16. Even though I am not a car guy, this one would get me interested. As a rental, not to own!

  17. A real wonder!

  19. Kate, this Auburn is a "replicar", and a very good one.
    Its lines are faithful to the original Auburn 851, but it has a modern power train and amenities. One tip off that it is a replica are the Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels. They are a smaller diameter than the originals.

    Gorgeous car!
