Chrysler’s 1934-37 Airflow may have been a masterpiece of streamlining, but it bombed in the marketplace. It simply looked too strange, and buyers stayed away. But removed from the context of its time, the Airflow is clearly a groundbreaking design.

Not that you can see much of it in this photo. I found this 1935 Airflow at the 2011 Mecum auction. I moved in close to photograph this detail.

    I really want to like the Airflow, but they are just too art deco for me. I guess I can appreciate them as art but not as a car?

    Good shot though, nice capture of the details.
