This pencil drawing is of one of my alltime favorite cars. It's a 1935 Auburn Boattail Speedster 851 SC.
I envision a beautiful actress driving down a two lane highway in California, on a hot summer night. Maybe she’s on the way to her latest movie opening…
I was at the Auburn Museum a few weeks ago and fell in love with this car. The 851 SC has a 280 ci supercharged inline 8 cyl. engine. It was at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum and was up for auction with the proceeds going to the museum. Just a stunning car!
(Actually the woman driving is my wife. I had her sit on a lawn chair in the backyard holding a steering wheel, with a scarf on her head.
