Continuing with the theme of egg-shaped cars, here’s the 1934 Chrysler Airflow on display at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum. I suppose that it’s not surprising that aerodynamic cars look a bit like eggs, though as Paul Jaray proposed, a teardrop shape might be the ideal shape. Jaray’s cars looked even odder than the Airflow, which as advanced as it was, may have been too advanced (at least in terms of styling) for the mass market to accept it.
What folks are saying:
"...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."
