Great Cars: CLASSIC CARS
- Published on: Saturday, November 11, 2017
- It was a time when the finest automobiles in the world were built - the era of the custom-bodied, luxury car. Some feel that this 20-year period from about 1920 to roughly 1940 was an Olympian Age of automotive design, much like the flourishing of Greek culture in Athens in the 5th Century BC. To car loves, this comparison is not quite as farfetched as it sounds. To them, these cars are simply great works of art and we're going to look at the people behind the legendary Duesenbergs, Packards, Hispano-Suizas,
Bugattis and Cadillacs. We'll see how these wonderful machines were built; find out who bought them and why they stopped. Along the way we will see what it takes to return a classic car to its original glory.
