Stars And Their Fabulous Cars

Hi, everyone!
It's not quite cold enough to break out my winter series even though I know all of you are just clamoring to hear from Shirley again. ha ha

For now, lets have a quick look at our favorite classic stars, showing off their large and expensive cars. It was all about status and putting your hard earned money into something you could show off to prove you had finally made it.

Rita Moreno poses in her '53 Packard.

Spencer Tracy, proudly shows off his '41 Chevy Woodie Wagon.

A young, Norma Shearer gets chauffeured around in her four door sedan.

Tyrone Power in front of his home with his '35 Duesenberg.

Una Merkel shows off her sedan on the studio lot.

Mamie Van Doren strikes a pose while washing her two door convertible.

Lupe Velez looks quite proud of her new car.

Rita Hayworth next to her '47 Lincoln

I hope you're all enjoying this gorgeous fall weather. Maybe in your own classic car or fabulous wheels. 
See ya soon!

  1. Well, I have to say I would gladly push gorgeous Tyrone down onto the asphalt, jump behind the wheel of that Duesenberg and drive away laughing maniacally ... what a car!!

      Causing Tyrone bodily harm is hilarious but I must say a bit disturbing. : )

  2. I would gladly push gorgeous Tyrone Power down onto something other than the asphalt (the back seat? a sofa? you get the idea...). He loved cars and owned many classics. Would love to have ridden around Old Hollywood with him in all of them.

      You girls are vicious when it comes to Ty! WOW! lol
      I do have a few photos of Tyrone with his beloved cars so hopefully I'll get the chance to 'roll those out' for all of you before someone gets hurt.

  3. I wouldn't mind cruising up to one of my old favorite LA drive-in restaurants with one of the babes like Rita or Mamie, in their cars. I knew some of the great spots for parking too.

  4. They surely had amazing cars! I'd love to be in one of these fancy convertibles, but for daily activities I'd prefer a compact car.
    By the way, many of your commenters will attack Tyrone Power on the road... me included.
    Kisses!

  6. These are gorgeous autos, all of them. As much as I love my vehicle, it doesn't come close to these beautiful cars.

  7. Page - I think I read that Gary Cooper always wanted to make sure his car was a little longer than Cary Grant's. What do you think that was all about??? I wonder.......

  8. My all time favorite vintage Car v"47 Lincoln".....The Lincoln Continental was introduced in 1940, just prior to the onset of World War II. The Lincoln marque had weathered The Great Depression and the Continental signaled to the world that they were serious about their desires to compete in the luxury car segment.
