The infamous Morgan three wheeler:
There's the Austin Special 'Salamanda', a unique custom build in the spirit of the Austin 7 specials. As much art as engineering.

How about a '34 Morgan where your first line of defense in a head-on is a killer JA Prestwich OHV v-twin?!
THAT'S a RIDE, baby!!!
Edit: I first used only the 3 initials for JA Prestwich, a it was automatically changed to MIJ!!
I actually saw one today
I had a yellow and white '57.
The best part was the mechanical solenoid...turn on the key and pull the starter.
And...of course...TUBE radio!
My grandfather had a 1950 Nash Ambassador almost exactly like this example, though his had the flying naked 'jet lady' hood ornament.
I learned to drive in it when I was 15.
Another Nash shot. I found this very nice 1951 in Hill City, South Dakota a couple weeks ago, and took a photo of it's chubby face...which I've heard referred to as 'The Grimacing Chipmunk'.
I just love the distinctive exhaust note on those Nashes. Nothing else sounds quite like it.
I like many weird old cars, especially from the 60’s
One I read about in my dad’s car magazines was the 1962 Ford Mustang prototype. Cosworth V4, Tiny care and I think the top of the windscreen was at 24” or something bizarre. Radiators in the vents behind doors in the rear quarters.
I used to have one of these. I'm a dummy for selling it. Really strangely gorgeous car. 4DHT with Full-Vue roof/rear windshield; it was like driving in a fish tank. Nothing but glass all the way around.
This can't be a car, it's a zeppelin!
From memory it was called the Mustang I
One of my mates is a Subaru tragic and races one of these, goes like sh1t off a Teflon shovel and sounds incredible.
A few years ago bought three Subaru F1 engines and a heap of spares and now owns one of the very few remaining Subaru/Coloni chassis to put an engine in
Cars like that prove the automakers no longer employ stylists.
My grandmother had one of those. Back in the 60’s someone covered one in something like ureafoam and shaped it into a phallus. I can’t remember if it was Roth or Barris but as I recall it didn’t go over so well.
