Some nice boatails in 1927, not really aerodynamic by it's self, but a race up a parking garage, now that's odd.

Just A Car Guy: Peugeot

Way back in 1927!

Banville's symbol race where several thousand people in Paris went racing in a new and gigantic garage in the neighborhood, eight floors high and three or four floors below ground, all accessed by ramps.

Spectators hung out in the turns and at each landing, and also on the steps of the stairs and in the offices that give it an elegant feel of a major sporting event.

At the top, in a spacious tennis court were tables of cakes, small ovens, and champagne were waiting for guests................

..........included motorcycles, cyclecars, racing cars and Bugatti, Delage, Amilcar, Seneschal, Talbot, Peugeot, etc.,.............

It ended, without incident or accident.

The new Pinto would be a silly, cartoonish shape for actual use.

But can it catch fire when rear ended? Or a bunch of other defects built in to shave a couple of $ on the manufacturing costs. Needs Takata air bags.

That pretty much sums up the shooting brake concept, right?

I like the look of it and it probably is marginally more useful than the Mustang. These days the Ford lineup outside of this is only CUVs, SUVs, PUs, and vans.

The fake wood paneling isn't too bad but the color-matched top is a bit much.

It needs a trick feature like the Doge Magnum hatch or the Ford 021C slide out tray:

Why not both?

This beauty used to be quite aerodynamic back in the day


Notice the smaller rear wheel arch
