Car Design as Art, Figoni & Falaschi

I have always considered the “Golden Age” of car design to be the period of the 1920’s and 30’s. Sure, the 1950’s were great, but true custom car design was at its peak during the time of the great coachbuilders, and the most flamboyant of the lot were the French.
