    A buddy of mine does museum quality auto restorations. One of his projects was a Packard Woodie. Wood is good.

    Common sense is like deodorant. The folks who need it most never seem to use it and there's no polite way to tell them.

    Before i put one up I'll just check; is there any requirement for the age of the car? i have one that might be quite hard to pick but it is less than 10 years old.
    If thats too new i do have a backup.

    Decided to go with my backup anyway. Hopefully it's not too easy for you to guess.

    1951 Buick LeSabre Concept Car.

    "The General Motors Le Sabre was a 1951 concept car. Possibly the most important show car of the 1950s, it introduced aircraft-inspired design elements such as the wrap-around windshield and tail fins, which became common on automotive designs during the second half of the decade."

    LT4man's personal editorial comment: The Concept Cars of the 1950s and 1960s pushed the automotive design envelope farther than any design within the last 40 years.

    It seems that was too easy. I'll have to find something much harder next time.
    I guess you're up now.

    WOW... great clue! You afraid we might guess it?

    Fiat 124 Spider is my guess.

    Just to clarify my previous answer to ROCKETBLOCK.

    The automobile pictured is NOT a Fiat 124 Spyder.

    The car IS similar to a Fiat 124 Spyder.

    Hope this helps. Not really!
