The best 1920s cars for turning heads, according to you


The book (and subsequent movie) The Great Gatsby gave many car enthusiasts a reminder of the grand vision many in America shared during the 1920s. Cars were bold. Flashy. If you need to make a grand arrival in modern times, a true pre-war classic is a great way to go about it. We asked our readers what car from the 1920s they would choose, and here are the results.

1929 duPont Model G Speedster


1928 Nash Advanced Six Coupe


Have to admit, I really like this list. A couple cars I never heard of. My vote goes to the Ruxton.


Interesting what folks like. Cars pictured were built in 1950, 1932, 1929, 1935, and 1936. Clearly the people’s favorite car of the 1920s is — a car of the 1930s!


@jc1 - You have a sharp eye and are correct. Many of the photos used are '30s vehicles, but the manufacturer or model was also in action in the '20s. We’ll work to use more accurate photos in the future.
