  1. I thought to myself ‘nice fin, but what does the front look like?’

    So I went to the link and found for most of 3 chapters only side/back shots [that fin, its pretty cool]

    Then, finally a front shot – the thing has THREE EYES!

    [Its awesome]

  2. That car is amazing , a vision of the future in car design – you didint really see fins like that untill the 1940s in america . Much like the Citroen Ds really . That thing honestly was years ahead of its time as well .

    Which all reminds me of farnsworth house really…
