The '25 Rolls Aero Coupe is a misnomer; the car was originally built as a convertible; it was completely rebodied by a coachbuilder in Belgium in 1934. So while it's bones are Rolls, it's really a customized car. It strikes me because if it WERE built by Rolls in '25, it would be well ahead of its time... and Rolls has NEVER been known to be a styling leader. As it is, (and it is striking, tho I hate the round Hobbit door), it's someone else's vision of a design that Rolls had nothing to do with, and it's 'merely' contemporary rather than leading edge. By rights, it should be called a '34.

Always grooved on the Phantom Corsair.

Thanks for the pics, dfelt- here's one more I think is worthy (the '69 prototype) :

Lovely Balthazar. Thanks for adding another beauty to the list. Agreed on the Rolls, but then it is what was on the signs. :)

Please everyone, post any other cars you feel deserves to be with this class of cars. :)

      The average age of a vehicle in the U.S. has hit a record high. According to Experian Automotive, the average age of the 245 million vehicles registered in the U.S. during the first quarter of 2012 was 11 years. That's an increase of just over 2 months when compared to last year.
      Experian Automotive goes onto say that more than 52 million cars and trucks in the U.S. are 16 years or older.
      Experian Automotive's analysis also found that Ford has the most models on the road compared to any other automaker. That really shouldn't come as a surprise since the Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. for 30 straight years. The top four automakers with the oldest models on the road include;
      Ford: 17.2%
      Chevrolet: 15.8%
      Honda: 10.4%
      Toyota: 7.3%

      The four most popular models are;
      Ford F-150: 3.4%
      Honda Accord: 2.6%
      Toyota Camry: 2.6%
      Chevrolet Sliverado: 2.0%

      Why are there more old vehicles on the road? For one, the recession and sluggish recovery has caused people put off buying or trading-in for a new or used car. Also, vehicles are just better built. During the 90's, improvement in quality picked up serious momentum.

      So my dad sent me an email that I loved but found it hard to swallow that someone would sell off a sealed barn full of auto's for pennies and not look to see what was in it first.
      Yet here is an amazing barn find.
      http://www.intuh.net/barnfinds/
      Here is the research done to get a better grab on the story, but I have to say I would love some of these old cars.
