New Morgan full aerodynamic coming

As the title says.

I have been lusting about owning a Morgan for years.....since the V8 came out.

Well they are coming out with a very eco minded auto. Complete with Bonneville Salt Flats Racing Hubcaps !

Wow, that's pretty. It reminds me of the 1930's aero-streamline experiments. I like the riveting too.

Yes...of course Figoni and Falaschi comes to mind....They were also known as Fancy and Flashy, The Bugatti type 57 Atlantic was a riveted marvel for all you officionados...Delage and Delahaye also wore some very nice tear drop "carrosseries". The most wonderful and simplest to me has to be the Talbot-Lago teardrop....I lived with one for a complete summer when I was guide in a museum.

In the commmmmplete opposite spectrum of economy mindedness but still sporting an absolutely incredible body is the Blastolene that was sold at Barret-Jackson for over 400 000. It is motivated by a V12 truck engine that realises aproximately 1 (one) mile to the gallon. Those 702 are quite thirsty. But then again who cares when it's not going to move from it's pedestal....

Check it out here if you wish, get the paper tissues for the drooling.
