Curves like these inspire poetry.  The 1948 Buick Streamliner by Norman E. Timbs is a muse in the world of classic cars, an automobile from a time when curvy was most desirable in the eyes of men.  Looking at a car like this makes one lament the slim, simple direction human attraction has gone, when the cars and cover girls leave plenty to be desired in the most important aesthetic quality– shape.  This classic Buick Streamliner is in pristine condition, restored by Dave Crouse for the 2010 Concours d’Elegance.  Its original construction took over two years, built with an aluminum body around a steel chassis.  Not only is it unlikely you’ll ever see this beauty on the road, it’s likely that you’ll never see it on the auction block.  A car like this is far too rare, too beautiful that any owner could ever want to pass it up– no matter the price.source
