I've always like the black and yellow plates of California. I see now one can special order them from the DMV much like vanity plates. I think it would look rather silly on my VW Golf or the motorhome.
This early 50's Buick proudly displays that it has an eight cyclinder engine. Only thing is that it is not a V-8 but rather an inline 8. My love for automobile engines has always been with inline motors.
Too bad the owner didn't have the hood up. I read once that General Motors styled these ports on the side of the Buicks after a WW2 fighter plane, I believe the Mustang.
Pure class. All we see on automobile glass these days are decals placed there by their owner like stick figures of the dad, mom, a bunch of kids, plus the dog and cat.
This was rather difficult to get a picture of what with all the reflections.
