Dieselpunk, Abandoned
Link - by Avi Abrams



Crossover: Dieselpunk + Retrofuture, by Victor-Albert Bouffort

"Victor-Albert Bouffort was an aeronautics engineer who took it upon himself to design and build some pretty crazy cars in the years after WWII. The first was this magnificent streamlined three-wheeler based on a Citroen Traction-Avant". Read this good article about this man here.

As it is clearly abandoned in the picture, it conveys mostly melancholy mood (hopefully since then somebody picked up and fully restored it - and by doing this, corrected one of the worst injustices in the Universe: a way-ahead-of-its-time design left to rust on the outskirts of history, forgotten... and yet presenting an image of surpassing beauty for those who truly care).

Love DRB!

I would like to recommend microcarmuseum.com for sources on this topic.

AND, flyingmachines.ru/ for a ridiculously intense and complete compendium of flying machines from... feathers to the 1920's.

This last will require googletranslate, but is well worth the effort.

Best wishes for your continued success?

(BTW: where is your tip jar? Would contribute!)
