All Beauties: Detroit Iron

Leave a comment

These vehicles are from a time when automobiles were really the "King of the Road". Perhaps they were a bit too large but they were really beautiful, not like today when everything looks like a egg without any chrome. I may be old fashioned but, chrome, even if it is a plastic substitue, still makes a car look expensive and it is always nice for a car to have some "nice" lines, not just a slab side. Also it would be an improvement to have white wall tires again. And so it goes.

How in the world did we ever park these beasts?

Here, take a look at When Detroit was in its Full Glory!
