Flat Fins

The late fifties and early sixties were a special era in the automotive design field. Cars everywhere were growing bullet taillights, tail fins and other extremities. Such new design features caught the imagination of the public. Maybe they hoped it made the car go faster, or maybe they simply thought it was cool. Either way, that distinct look has held its own throughout the decades as a unique time of automotive excitement and change.

  1. Nice one, Tim! A nice way to extract part of the tail of the car yet still leave the viewer with enough of an impression of the complete car.
