Designer extraordinaire Norman E. Timbs was asked to bring the concept of the 1949 Buick Streamliner into the future. He did a brilliant job, and the results are in the gallery. The mid-century calls were all about show, not gas mileage.

The back of the redesigned Buick Streamliner seems to stretch on for miles. The cherry red color of the concept car could easily pass as the flame trail of this gorgeous car.
