I've had three Lexus, just ran out to the garage to look at my current LC, I see no portholes, nor have I ever seen any portholes on any Lexus. Nor do I remember seeing portholes on any other make. Some late model Buicks did have stuck on portholes.

A couple of classics at the Copper Kettle cafe (nee Glory Company), Ngatea, New Zealand (with an ugly tourist information sign Photoshopped out as it ruined the setting)

Maybe not considered a 'classic' by today's standards,
but I feel this is one of the most beautiful cars created.

I think it dates to around 1985 or thereabouts.

It is the Chrysler Chronos.
There's a placard which explains "quenching the thirst for perfection."
I'll have to find that and append to this post.

It's easy for me to see the inspiration for the 300's styling
as it applies to the current 300 models.

The Meadow Brook venue was a rare situation, as they allowed very-close
observation of unique and priceless vehicles. Since several years ago,
there is no more of the up-close views with dropped ropes.
I sorely miss the previous venue, which I felt was a perfect background scene
to the multitudes of world-class vehicles displayed.

Both sets beautifully photographed
And both magnificent, but my favourite is the Auburn.

That Chrysler must have been quite a showroom standout in its day.
Very classy and beautiful IMO.
Just checked it out. Love the interior, the gauges, just everything about it

Thanks for sharing.

I just assumed being that it would have featured in dealers yards around the nation.
Did they just make concept cars and not "show" them?

As I understand it, concept cars are built in very small numbers - as in, a handful maybe - they are hand built and so even a major manufacturer can’t justify the expense of building very many. As a result, they’re mainly utilized internally or shown at the major international auto shows only, at least until they’ve outlived their usefulness- at which point, most are sadly sent to the crusher.

Holden had a long and illustrious history of concept cars too Richard. You can see (and read about) some of them here (external link). One of them became the latter-day (2001-05) Monaro but mostly they were way too costly to feasibly go into production.

Ah that Monaro coupe. I do remember that.
Pity that didn't make it to production. I'm sure they could have designed it stronger, and the Monaro itself fell away. Sad! I loved that car.

Thanks for input.
How sad they didn't see fit to hang onto them.

Yes I think those CV8 Monaros are exquisitely beautiful cars, especially the last one, the CV8-Z. I think a sleek Monaro based on the VE Commodore would have been a sensation too, with its aggressively flared wheel arches, but sadly it was never to be.

And VW keeps teasing us with their microbus concept, such a cool idea and they have bringing variations of it for decades now to the big shows like the LA Auto Show. But no actual vehicles !
