Have you ever seen something that is a contender as the ugliest thing ever in that category? I have, and we all do. Whether it’s sculpture (what is that?), paintings (huh?) or even the American icon, the car. Today there is a one of a kind car, and that’s a good thing. It’s worth a lot of money, though I really don’t know why. Check it out. Hope that 2014 thing is starting off well for you. It is here in ODD.

                                                              Holy flurping schnitt!! It’s a visual train wreck. I can’t stop looking at it. 07030114 1957 Spohn Convertible,,,,holy flurping schnitt!! It's like a visual train wreck,,,I can't stop looking at it,,,Carosseriebau Hermann Spohn was founded in 1920 in Ravensburg, Germany. A short distance away, Dr. Karl Maybach began manufacturing drivetrains and chassis. It was not long before Spohn became Maybach’s favored coachbuilder.

Spohn remained in business until 1957.

08030114 09030114 10030114 11030114 12030114Built in 1957, it is one of the last Spohns ever built. Spohn was a coachbuilder from Ravensburg, Germany, who was credited for building bodies for the pre-WWII Maybach luxury cars.

After WWII, Spohn purchased left-over cars from the U.S. military for their chassis and continued as a coachbuilder taking orders on a one-on-one basis. Each car was built to the specific desires and specifications of the buyer. There were less than 200 cars built and no two were alike.

This example is built on a 1939 Ford chassis with a 1953 Cadillac 331 cubic-inch V8 engine, with a 4-barrel carburetor, and is backed by a 3-speed Ford transmission.

    I do believe that you’re right, Lee. That is one butt-ugly car, especially in the putrid green. What was Fiat thinking?×768/wallpaper_03.htm
