RM Hershey 2015 Preview – 1925 Henderson De Luxe with Goulding Sidecar

This beautiful bike grabs the eye and imagination together. The streamlined, art deco shape of fenders and body cowling is mirrored nicely in the luxurious and very roomy-looking sidecar. A patina-filled cobalt/turquoise finish is the perfect showcase of this very rare and innovative motorcycle.   1925 Henderson De Luxe with Goulding Sidecar  RM Hershey 8-9 October 2015 1925 Henderson De Luxe with Goulding Sidecar

2015 DELAHAYE USA Bugnotti Reimagines Type 165 With New Styling and Modern Mechanicals

PART TWO: The Bugnotti While researching the Delahaye 135M Figoni et Falaschi article yesterday, we came across Delahaye USA — a custom fabrication specialist with two stunning models in the current range. The Pacific is an ultra-long and low homage to the classic Bugatti Type 57S, but powered by a modern V12 and bodied in carbon fiber.  The Bugnotti is a nod to the Delahaye Type 165, but vastly different in design. Modern running gear and standard AC make Delahaye USA a one-of-a-kind option for those seeking art deco design, exquisite craftsmanship, and fully bespoke choices for every possible element …

Auto Landmark: Chicago Motor Club Building- Vacant Art Deco Highrise

How sad is this title? 17 stories of glory, with car elevators and a full drive-up garage system, on prime real estate of Wacker Drive in Chicago? Last we checked, 68 South Water Street was owned by a consortium of flustered real estate investors. Hotel conversion plans have backfired, and there are rumblings that the building … may not be inhabitable. Too bad. Look at this penthouse sun room. Vacant for the last 30 years, at least. Built over 80 years ago, bringing this masterclass in Art Deco architecture up to code seems to be prohibitively expensive at the moment. …

Coolest Vintage Hood Ornaments – Pierce-Arrow, Cadillac, Stutz, Chrysler, Ford, Bentley and More…
