Norman Timbs Special
Timbs was a mechanical car engineer from Los Angeles with experience in building cars from scratch, and he built his one-off special for around $10,000, taking inspiration from the Auto Union racers of the 1930's. The heavily streamlined car uses a 1948 Buick straight-8 engine, and is reportedly capable of 120mph. It was left to rot in the desert before being discovered in 2002, and restored to its glorious best.
