If I had to choose only one, it would have to be the 1941 Chevrolet.

I just added more model years. Take a look at the 49'S George. They were totally redesigned after the war. Cheers, Mario

The war stopped production of American cars in Feb 1942. Only a few models were built that year. New cars finally came out for the 1946 model year with few changes from 1942. After retooling the newer 1949 models that came out were much redesigned and the V8 engine took over. Fins grew by the year and many mechanical improvements were made.

It was a difficult decade for the World but ended on a high note with much anticipation for the Fabulous Fifties to come! Mario

I can look at that beautiful 49 Pontiac straight eight and that beautiful 49 Buick straight eight all day long. I have always had a thing for vintage in line motors, sixes and eights. With the in line eights there is more to look at. Six and eight in a row will go, some folks say they are slow, I say so.... and what is the rush anyway. Cheers.

Ah yes the 1949 redesigned GM cars were breathtaking in good looks. So modern and the Gateway to the Fabulous Fifties! Great seeing these cars at shows. The long straight 6 and 8's were incredible. Cheers!
