I usually applaud your taste, Howard, but that 1937 Cadillac V16 Series 90 Hartman Cabriolet has got to be one of the most awkward abortions ever put on wheels!  Also, I’d bet that Mercedes “SS” 710 may actually have started out as a VERY late 680 S-modell; the hood and radiator tank had to be raised about an inch in production to accommodate the higher 7.1 litre SS engine.  Sam, III

Howard, the photo of a 1929 Duesenberg J Murphy Town Limousine, Lehrman Collection, is wrong, it’s is a 1935 Duesenberg JN Bohman & Schwartz Convertible Coupe (2585 J-560).
