Reply nigel September 14, 2012 My father who was born soon after WW1 marveled at these cars, he always claimed that the Spanish made the finest car in their day. I the 1960′s I was lucky enough to own a number of spanish motorcycles, at the time they too were the epitome of beauty and functional design. The world still makes beautiful cars and bikes, but some how, looking at this you wonder why such lovely vehicles could still be made. Surely, there would be a market? Reply Harry Bergeron May 11, 2014 They still make lovely, expensive, high-performance cars, but the definition of ‘lovely’ has changed, in line with the crassness of our degenerate times. The rich always get what they ask for. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published. Name* Email* Website Comment Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
