Is it just me?
« on: November 06, 2013, 12:17:43 AM »
Is it just me or do the 1940 Caddys look like they have Groucho Marx's moustache? To clarify, more the LaSalle. I think Hailey knew what was coming and he wanted some humour. I am probably wrong though.

I must assume it is just me, especially since my wife just laughed at me about this.

G'day Joe, I think perhaps only you . . . and perhaps Salvidore Dali could see the Groucho Marx moustache.  Have you talked to your Dr about adjusting your prescription? Mind you it sounds like you are probably enjoying the ride where it presently is. hehe.
         But while we are talking, what about the Bette Davis eyes on the 39s???  The Jane Russell hips on the 53 Eldo??? Monica Lewinski lips on . . .

I see it in the photos, BUT let's not forget The "Dagmar" bumpers of the 50s.

Mine being a 1948, had "training" Dagmars on it, lol.

A message from 49er

    Joe, this is what I have. Everybody had their faiths religious symbols on their dash. Hard to find today, sadly, do you remember? Art

Joe, moustache or non moustache, this design was influenced by Tjaarda's Lincoln Zephyr. Another design that influenced the automotive industry, was G. Buehrig's Cord 810/812 the "coffin nose" that you see on yours '38 60 Special and to some extend, on the '41 Cadillac.

Thanks to Frank Hershey for its design and thanks to Harry Barr, Ed Cole, John Gordon and Byron Ellis for its engine.
