This was taken at the Savoy Museum in Cartersville GA. The car was built by GM/Chevrolet and there were about 3000 +/- made in all. There are only 9 survivors believed to be still alive. A truly unusual car. I am bumping 80 and never heard about this car until last Saturday.

These were taken with a Fuji X-T4 with 16-80 Fuji lens in Auto mode and adjustments in PS 2022.

Count me as another 83 year old who has not seen this. An interesting vehicle.

For those interested Google "36 Chevy Foreman Coupe". Meant to put this in original post and forgot.

you did a good job on the photos. I was there a couple of weeks ago and found the color of light that they had inside the building made getting the colors of the cars right when I got home and looked at them. I ended up with some nice hood ornaments where car color did not matter. How about that Pierce Arrow?

Thanks. The Pierce Arrow or the Ruxton, both beautiful automobiles.

When I was far younger than I am today, I saw a few of these in California. Mostly, at vineyards. I saw a lot of makeshift pickups also. The trunk lid was removed and some kind of wooden box was built into the space. Some were very nice and some pretty crappy. Right now I'm envisioning an old Hudson 4 door with trunk lid gone and a wooden box made of old rotted driftwood. Not nearly as nice as the beauty in the photos.
