      I had shoulder reconstruction 3 weeks ago and am bored out of my mind. Keep me entertained and post 'em up, just as long as they got fins or rocket-ish styling





      And quite possibly my all time favorite

      VWObsession, what is that? It looks super familiar but can't put a finger on it.

      Fins are the best automotive styling cue in history.

      Does this ducktail count as a fin? If so, I LOVE it...

      Jaguar D-Type:



      1959 Imperial. Notice the pioneering use of curved sideglass:



      Here's a real tailfin humdinger. Packard's last gasp of 1958. The designers had nil funding, so they grafted fiberglass double-fins onto the 1957 Studebaker body. Voila! Twin fins!

      My favorite fins are on the 1961 Oldsmobiles. They tricked everyone and put them on the bottom, and called them "skegs". I've always thought they look pretty cool, and visually lower and widen the car nicely. V. Sporty.

      I am confident you are wrong, but instead of illustrating why, I will just make disparaging remarks about your reading comprehension.
