A series of images highlighting details and portions of cars I have found interesting, significant, and to be admirable solutions to improve the product..... and a golden opportunity to display the ablities of the remarkable Leica optics.

Please feel free to add your details.

Another first and only sighting - four-barrel Weber carburators on a 1955 Pegaso 102 Coupe. The owner told me one of the carbs had been in damaged in a fire, and it took two year and US$35,000 to locate another one.

Nice thread topic.  Are adding details in b/w's okay?  Your color images are wonderful.

Can't remember the name, but always liked this twin-plug three cylinder engine I spotted at a San Luis Obispo, California car show with the theme of "VW's to Cadillacs" a few years ago.
