    The subject can be any real-world machine of transport -- automobile, train, aircraft, boat, etc. -- that you find especially pretty or esthetically pleasing. They may be from any time period. Media images are OK if they depict actual private, commercial or military craft, but no custom vehicles made specifically for media (e.g., no Batmobiles, Monkeemobiles, or Man from UNCLE cars). Standard avatar rules apply.

    My entry: The 1937 Cord 812 convertible.

    Oh, and could one of the mods add the word "ENTER" in front of the thread title? I forgot to write it. Must be a brain fart.

    My 2013 1LE Camaro, I really like the matte hood, gives her a great look

    Hmm, difficult one. I was thinking of one of these beautifully painted Pakistani trucks or the gilded sledge of King Ludwig II (built in 1872, first vehicle ever with a battery-powered lightbulb!). But both have too many tiny details for the 150 pixels permitted.
    Must sleep over this - maybe I have an inspiration :)

    Well, my first thought was my Uncle's 55 Chevy:

    But it's still being restored, so it's not so very beautiful yet. I may come up with something else over the weekend.

    Yes, it's a yellow submarine. And it's pedal-powered.

    Remember, aircraft are eligible as well. There are lots of pretty airplanes.

    @TayLaLaLa: Frankly, I think the DeLorean's styling looks like a toy car made of cardboard. But chacun à son goût, as I always say.

    I have liked Cords since I first saw one at a classic car show as a kid (I also like Hudsons from late 40s/early 50s, but they aren't on the same tier as the Cord, regarding beauty.... ). What a beautiful vehicle! I second your vote, scotpens (Although I need to think a bit more to see about coming up with my own unique entry, rather than simply applauding yours!)!

    Was at Pioneer Auto in South Dakota in March, where they have one of the original General Lees on display:

    Fun place to visit. I can highly recommend it!

    Nice. I love balloons. Come to think of it, I have a balloon avatar that I could have entered. :rommie:

    Any more entries, people? There are still plenty of classic cars to choose from. And there haven't been any heavier-than-air aircraft so far.
