Description The Chevrolet Corvette was not the only fiberglass 2-seater marketed by an American auto manufacturer in 1954. There was also the Kaiser Darrin DKF 151, one of the most daring designs ever. This roadster, designed by Howard 'Dutch' Darrin of Packard fame, had doors that opened by sliding forward into the front fenders, a unique 3-position top, and a grille that some called 'the Kiss'. 435 were produced during a one-year run. Production ceased just before its parent company, Kaiser Motors, closed its doors in the U.S.
Gordon Summer, San Diego Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement I'm really an ad guy . . . more of a marketing type. But I love cars. Used to collect 'em. But made the decision to go urban 15 years ago, and a high-rise in a city ain't no place to keep a car collection. So they're gone. I like to say I've bought and sold maybe $3 or $4 million worth of great cars over the years . . . for a grand total of $116,000.
Anyway, now I take photos of classics, sports, exotics, muscle cars, and misc. special interest autos, manipulate 'em digitally, and do giclee prints. They take up so much less space, and don't drip anything on the floor!
