    ^ That thing BTW had sliding doors.

    Somewhere in So.Jersey there is an attic with boxes of old car brochures collected by me and my brothers when we were kids. What I couldn't get at the local dealerships I would write away for. A rep at Checker even called me, tracking down our number from the address. He was disappointed to hear I was 10 years old.

    This is the famous scene at the end of the film where I decide to take matters into my own hands and direct traffic for myself.

    ^ Soooo refined. You want to wear a handmade suit to be driving that.

    Along the same timeless ultra-chic lines.... the 1958 Ferrari 250 GT:

    This little wine-fueled 1970 Aston Martin DB6 Volante in Seychelles Blue seen making the rounds earlier today is pretty sweet (it belongs to Dad) ...



    Also looks good in British Racing Green with a hard top ...



    The State Bentley in Royal Claret that got the Princes to the church on time isn't so bad either ...

    Classic British, German and Italian automobile design. All very different and all very great. Each of them really reflects something of their country.

    I caught a bit of the wedding over lunch at a locale were they had a TV going.

    I was dying... the style... it was overwhelming.

    Retractable headlight covers are the coolest.

    The advertising of American automobiles during the years 1965-1966...even if it was a Ford Galaxie... they were using high fashion... glamourous women... men that looked like Sean Connery. Bond was big. Buick's whole campaign for '65 had the cars on white backgrounds, set at an angle. There's a POP art feel to them.

    These ads would have been created in 1964. What a time for design... the Beatles had arrived, the Mods, Pop art, James Bond.

    I've never seen Mad Men... but if I had to set an exciting time for advertising it would be the mid-60's.

    And when you look at these ads, you just know they were not the result of consumer surveys and control groups... these were advertising guys with balls doing what they thought was best. The result is artistic and cultured.

    Not to mention being way too small, since it only seats two people! Get in an accident with it, and chances are that you may end up dead!!
