Streamlining at its best

I love this 1952 Salt Flat racer featured on KarzNShit recently. It combines the very best of Auto Union's prewar aero ideas with the best of 1950s hot rodding for one super sexy, super sleek speed form. Wow.

PS, just wanted to point out--look at how much nicer the graphics and numbers look on the restored car than how they actually looked in period! Talk about taking creative liberty in the name of aesthetic improvement!

Very similar in appearence to what was happenning in drag racing in the early 60s. Jocko Johnson's streamliner comes to mind...
