The Art Deco movement produced some pretty stylish buildings and objects in the 1920's and 30's, a period long before the advent of mobile phones. Would you trade your celly for some of that old school style?

Welcome to Morning Would, where we present you with some of the most desirable, controversial cars ever built and ask what you would do to drive one.

The Empire State and the Chrysler Buildings in New York went up within one year of each other, and are both considered Art Deco icons (and amongst Americans' favorite architecture). These competing skyscrapers are bold, strong, and sleek in a retro-futuristic way.


For the Paris show this year, Rolls-Royce claims to have built 3 cars inspired by the Art Deco period-a black Phantom, a two-tone Ghost, and a powder blue Phantom Drophead Coupe. Whether or not you think they pulled off the Art Deco look, they're still some sweet Rollers. And all three can be yours, so long as you forego what the original Art Deco artists and designers couldn't have even dreamed of-your cell phone. You want to be true to the 1930's when you're cruising with the Spirit of Ecstasy, don't you?

Is it worth it? Three bold Rolls-Royces, but you have to give up the device that perhaps most defines our contemporary era. Would you do it? Let us know below.
