    This weekend, I attended the Gatsby Summer Afternoon, hosted by the Art Deco Society of California. The idea is to re-create an elegant afternoon 1920s party like the ones Jay Gatsby would host in F. Scott Fitzgerald's famed novel. Everything at the party, from the clothing to the cars, had to look or feel like the time between 1920 and the '40s pre-World War II.

    Can anyone tell me more about these cars?

      I like very much the picture of the first one...it is a beautiful car!

      The radiators and tags tell what the first and last ones are: a '25 Hispano-Suiza and a '28 Stutz. The convertible in the 3rd pic is a '41 Packard, probably a 120.

      the cars are great cars from the 20's they were a little different then the car you have some you had to crack to start in the front. when cars first came out there was no age limit so when saleman were teaching perents to drive they where also teach the older children 9-up. there really were no (donut tires) bc of how the tires were most spairs were mounted on the back of the car or sometime underneath but cars like the ones form the Gatsby story were mounted on the passenger side of the car. i like te pic any more questions
