OLS Saturday AM Car Show: The 1934 Voisin Type C27 Aerosport Coupe

A while back, Popular Mechanics featured a series on Art Deco-inspired cars from the 1920s and 30s.  Included was the 1934 Voisin Type C27 Aerosport Coupe. Throughout the 20s and into the 40s the sleek needs of aviation products influenced design philosophies in automobiles, as is clearly evident in the C27. From the PM article:
Gabriel Voisin was an aviation pro, who created the first manned, engine powered, heavier-than-air plane capable of a sustained, controlled flight. His military aircraft greatly helped France during World War I.
And now to the photos:
