Does it come with the optional Tommy guns under the rear seats? :lol: Looks beautiful, and it's got to be one of the coolest cars in the forum :)

I'm guessing somewhere around five.

Come on guys, the car's only interesting because it's exclusive and it's only exclusive because it actually made it 80 years into the future whereas all the others that looked just like it (most cars from the 30s look almost identical), rot and died.

No more conversation was needed, the smiley got the point across.

No, it said "You have no idea what you're talking about", and since I'm the kind of guy who likes having an idea of what he's talking about, maybe you could give me some idea. How is that car cool? Because it sure as hell isn't fast, it probably wasn't the fastest even back in its time, it wasn't remembered as prestigious like the Rollers and Bentleys, and is has nowhere near the design flare of cars from the 60s and the 70s. So why?
