Favorite 30's car

What is your favorite 1930's era car? Provide a reason and some statistics on the car, a picture also.

Mine has got to be one of the mythical Duesenberg SJ roadsters, this one inparticular.

It was an accident, so I switched the other one around to ask what everyones favorite classic convertable is.

The stunning Mercedes-Benz SSK Count Trossi from 1930.
7.1 Liter 6 cylinder engine good for 300HP!!!! For 1930 that was quite impressive. Top Speed was 125mph. Again...quite impressive.

Chrysler Airflow

And the building which the car was designed to compliment.

The Auburn Boat-tail takes a close second. (Man, those things have presence!)
