Some More Special Autos

Recently I posted two oddball cars from a display that had been (it has now travelled on) at the Fine Arts Museum in Houston.

Here are a few that are definitely not oddballs - these will have you salivating with desire. These elegant motorcars are all from the 1930s and obviously were built for the very rich in the middle of the Great Depression. Today they are still only for the very rich.


Delahaye 135M Competition Coupe



Delahaye 135MS Roadster



Hispano-Suiza H6B Dubonnet "Xenia" Coupe



Talbot-Lago T-150C-SS Teardrop Coupe



Packard Twelve Model 1106



Oh, if they only had air-conditioning.

I like the angle, getting everything in the frame while having a definite focus. Good stuff.

I enjoyed my tour ride on the White Pass & Yukon. Got the hat.

They are.


So you must be near an Army base that has a squadron of them.

There's a local operator with Chinooks. I'll see if I can get a shot of one in flight (HIF?).

House on wheels

I was out for a walk late in the evening and saw this. Seems like someone decided his house was in the wrong place.
