An eclectic selection of lettering from mainly American cars, with the exceptions of the DKW Auto Union and the Harrington Cavalier.
The DKW 3-6 Sonderklasse is a rare German beast and from the actual car that racing legend Jim Clark drove in his first race at Crimond June 1956. The 'Cavalier' is from an English Harrington Cavalier Coach.
Rarety aside though, the Hornet lettering has to be my favourite on that lovely 50s rocket-shaped chrome - beautiful!
