    Can someone identify this sensational black car (with red trim) to the right of the Cadillac?

    Both the TAV and the Cadillac are Saoutchik designs (bodies)...

    It is a fascinating history and there are a lot more links on the internet about the car for those interested.

    I'm surprised no one has commented on the car's logo- a giant flying stork on the side of the hood.

    Some background and how the logo came to be:

    The new backer was needed after Albert's wife refused to further spend any of her personal fortunes. The new partner is Emile Guillet, who already had a coachbuilding firm. The radiator on the TAV 2 chassis with the mock-up sixteen cylinder engine was fitted with an ornament that sported a stork similar to that of Albert's old squadron. This would become Bucciali's trademark logo.

    The TAV engine/trans was mounted like my old 99/900 SAAB cars - (late 60's to mid 90's).

    Front wheel drive.
    Engine mounted 'backwards' longitudinally with the belts/water pump etc. up against the firewall.
    The Clutch, Flywheel, Transmission and Diff at the 'front' of the car. The clutch was right behind the front bumper/grille.

    Buccialli. I saw the car at Pebble . I thought it was going to auction, then was withdrawn. At the time there was talk that none had survived
    but I think by now three of them have been found. The brothers Buccialli showed their cars at several Paris Shows but just never got more than a handful completed. A Los Angeles millionaire spent a million making a fake one on a Chevy Blazer chassis

    I was searching for a heron rather than a stork, so all my hits came up with kit cars from the 1970s.

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    ^^^ You guys missed it because the Bucciali "stork" logo was flying backhaul, not delivery! I wouldn't have guessed it either had it not been for the military squadron reference.

    I was searching for swans, and gave up when google fed me too many of these.

    OK, well you're sort of right. The car in an A40 Sport....but it's not a Jensen but an Austin as suggested by the winged A on the bonnet.

    Not surprising considering people in this area (Chicago) have really bad taste. I mean, seriously, this thing is dreadfully hideous.
