Weird and wonderful: Odd-looking 1948 TASCO prototype draws a crowd in Amelia | Hagerty Media

Gordon M. Buehrig was never at a loss for ideas. Great ones. As the man responsible for designing the Auburn 851 Speedster, Cord 810/812, and several variants of Duesenberg's Model J, Buehrig had a proven automotive track record. So when he proposed the idea of a European-styled sports car to a group of 1940s investors, it wasn't a hard sell.

On the field at Meadowbrook, I joined a gaggle of fans with whom Buehrig was holding forth. He was witty, and self-effacing when he had to be. Asked why he'd done a certain thing on the Cord's look, he answered "Damned if I remember."

Just because you can doesn't mean you should. Odd indeed!
