    That is one sweet looking car. I think I would have chosen a different material for the interior. Ostrich skin looks like it has acne.

        I like the Ostrich skin interior. It matches the rest of the car as it's intent seems to be to give everyone testicular envy.

          Good Lord!! What a magnificent, mind-blowing work of art. I'd consider this one of the most important (and beautiful) cars ever built. One day its price will reflect that. This is truly a milestone in automotive achievement. Even the ostrich skin is out of this world shocking. I guess it was Boyd's connection to the name he chose - the French Tickler.

              I thought that car was, um, odd when it came out. I get the Delahaye/Delage inspiration, but I'll still say CadZZilla was Boyd's best effort.

                Delahaye/Delage This is my favorite blue blood classic car so I do really love it. But yeah I'll hang with Dave on Zilla being his best effort/best well known.

                  I gotta agree, although this is a beautiful creation, CadZZilla was still the pinnacle. And what about the part of
                  • "this hemi-head 1,200-pound monster delivers 750 hp at 4,800 rpm and a whopping 810 lb-ft of torque at 3,800 rpm"
                    I would think that something with a little better hp/lb ratio (just for the engine alone) would be a better choice.

                    It's a boat motor so it'll run those numbers for freakin' days on end.

                    I think Cadzilla is his coolest car and obviously most well known, but this thing is a different direction and to me, the whole coach building aspect to this one puts it in a special spot.

                    If I was picking one, Cadzilla would be in my garage...well, my driveway.

                      Of course I agree that CadZZilla is super awesome, really breathtaking. It's like asking, which is better, a Hemi Cuda, a Hemi Charger or a Hemi Dart?

                          I'd drive the snot out of that car.
