Like the last of the Packards, the 1955 and 1956 models, were some of the best looking cars of the mid-1950s, the 1936 and 1937 Pierce-Arrows, that company’s final years, were some of the best looking cars of the mid-1930s. By then, other manufacturers were starting to have fender mounted, faired-in headlamps, but Pierce-Arrow still managed to make a distinctive and distinguished looking luxury car. I’m not a huge fan of prewar cars but the last Pierce-Arrows have clean lines and great proportions that work well with the imposing, tall radiator grille.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
