An 8C that had way too much plastic surgery.

Gee I wonder if that would suck up the leaves in my driveway?

That's one pricey leaf blower.

that, birds, stray trash blowing around, racoons, etc.
I would really consider putting some kind of screen on that snout.

The maroon car w the big snout is a Perana Z1, the body is by Zagato, the motor by Chevrolet (LS6) and the chassis by Perana of South Africa. I guess I like it better than most of you. It reminds me of specials like the Bizzarinni Strada and the Gordon-Keeble.

That looks gorgeous. I think it is French post war from the lines, but not sure of coach-builder or underlying chassis.
The shadow just below the top of the screen, makes me think it might be a Sedanca De Ville rather than a coupe or sedan body. However they pretty much disappeared before the second world war, so suspect it is a coach-built vehicle

This has been niggling at me all afternoon. Sort of like a Chapron body, possibly on a Delahaye chassis. But I am not sure that is right.
There was also a gorgeous body on a Talbot Lago with approximately this shape to nose, but proportions look wrong.

This is a Delahaye - probably a 235 - and the body looks really swoopy and curvy, so is the coachbuilder Sauchock (? spelling)?
