Sightseeing in style. Ron Van Gelderen took this photograph of the V-16 convertible coupe. He drove the car in the early 1970s from a suburb of Detroit to his home near Washington, D.C. The classic styling of this beautiful automobile goes well with the classical architecture of the Capitol Building. Photo courtesy of Ron Van Gelderen.
