Love that car, but unfortunately, I don't think we're quite there yet Chris... base price: $92,000 It's just a "rebodied" Lotus Elise with an electric engine... & the Elise goes for less than half that price. I think that this car is just the new gadget for those who have more money th...

Frank Escher tells me that Lautner did in fact make changes to this house, including the addition of metal frame windows. More to come. Thanks again for the info Frank. Can't wait to hear the whole story! So then the Freeman's actually were architecturally promiscuous? Well, Schindler passed away i...

Re: CITROEN DS - The "frog mouth"

I don't know how many people are familiar with this car in the US, but being from Europe, I remember admiring this truly unique and advanced car for its age... really cool mid-century design and great ride due to its advanced hydro-pneumatic suspension, where you practically don't feel the road.

In reading the first reference, I was a bit put off by the rambling style of Jeffrey Chusid's comments, not to mention his confusion of the Crystal Palace with the Crystal Cathedral (!). And I suppose it's possible that the...
