1. Think about the Bel Air. This is a 1955, which deserves a nomination and maybe even the prize for most iconic car design:
What makes that image so perfect? Is it a picture of an airplane? See how it matches the hood ornament, pictured here (from the same car)?
2. The inside of a 1959 Triumph:
I'm completely in love with this, even though it's really easy to picture yourself dying impaled on that steering wheel... or maybe because....
3. I know Chrysler's having a hard time these days. I mean, it's being taken over by the hound of hell! So let's show some love for the 1962 Series 300:
You know, maybe you feel like designing the rear window all weird and pointy. Back then, you could just do it. Some people might say it doesn't make sense. Form should follow function. That's just doing something odd for the sake of doing it. But looking back, it's so poignant. The hound of hell was far in the future. These were the crazy days of youth when things didn't need to make sense.
4. Okay, you take the 1932 Ford:
I want that Sting Ray. But we'll leave the blue for another day. Today's car post was brought to you by the color red.
UPDATE: The second picture under #3 is not the Chrysler. Sorry for the mistake. Two different commenters -- at the Flickr site -- have identified it as a Dodge Charger, probably 1968.
