They're officially called "outrigger seats," but off the record they're known as "Mother-in-law Seats." The 1923 Kissel 6-45 GoldBug has two, and they're so stupid-awesome and dangerous we couldn't help but love the whole car.
We have a hard time getting revved up about horseless carriages over one century old, but this 1908 Maxwell LC Tourabout is pretty remarkable. Check out the horizontally opposed two-cylinder powerplant. Take that Subaru.
Minivans practically euthanize style as a matter of course, but it needn't be so. Check out this nine passenger1947 DeSoto Custom Suburban, it's more stylish than a dozen modern Bentleys and cooler to boot.
Put aside for a moment that the one-wheel-in-front, three-wheeled car setup is inherently unstable, because when a car like the 1948 Davis Delta has this much wacky style, staying wheels-down is highly over rated.
Billetproof wasn't the only Detroit-area car show this weekend, we also popped over to Ypsilanti's Orphan Car Show, where we found the only car to make an appearance at both shows — Wilt Chamberlain's 1967 Ghia.
