They're coming to get you!

Not the relentless progress of a horrendous alien being climbing though holes in its spaceship to come and get you, but the beautifully-crafted external exhaust pipes of a 1935 Auburn 851 Speedster. The car was designed in 1933 for E.L. Cord by Alan Leamy, and re-styled in 1935 by Gordon Buehrig. This particular car was personally tested to over 100 m.p.h. by the famous record-breaker Ab Jenkins.
