REAL Stars . . . and Their Cars

Spectacular images of an elegant time gone by-

Clark Gable: 1934 Duesenberg
-one never to be equalled by today's repellent 
Hollywood slobs and their farcical 'green' charade:

Rita Hayworth: 1941 Lincoln Continental

Marlene Dietrich: 1936 Cadillac V-16 (!) 36-90 Aero-Dynamic Coupe 

Errol Flynn: 1935 Auburn Speedster

Joan Crawford: 1938 Lincoln Model K

Jean Harlow: 1934 Cadillac Split Limo

Frank Sinatra: 1955 Ford Thunderbird

Clint Eastwood: Ferrari 365 GTB4 Berlinetta Boxer (flat 12)

The Gipper famously campaigned for CA Governor in a
1965 Mustang Convertible, now on display at the Reagan Library...

Alas, nowadays we have the likes of Cameron Diaz and 
her plug-in p.o.s. Prius... I hope she drives it off a cliff

And you know what you can do with the Leaf

The Rat Pack drove classy cars.

HERE is a photo essay about Dean Martin's cars.

Thanks AoW... I remember he had one of those Stutz Bearcats in the early 70s, so did SD Jr

Great car, Mr. Gable. Hence, "It's a real Doozy".

Reaganite Republican said...

Right on Proof, I was always fond of that bit of trivia myself

How I wish we still made cool cars, and not boxes with wheels.

Dodge Challenger isn't exactly chopped liver Trestin, Mustang neither- but for all their capabilities, they're kind of a parody of themselves

What would Clark Gable say today if they told him his car put out too many emissions?

"Quite frankly Gore, I don't give a damn."

Okay, that was bad, I apologize :)

Wrong Madhat... that was classic~

Great post RR. Really enjoyed it. Clint Eastwood looks bigger than life next to his Ferrari.
