Cars of "The Great Gatsby" era

The car: 1928 Stutz BB Blackhawk Boattail Speedster. Hagerty's take: If there was one American car that barreled into the Roaring '20s to make a statement, it was the Stutz BB Blackhawk Boattail Speedster. The Blackhawk was America's fastest production car in 1928, capable of consistent speeds of more than 105 mph. Dual side-mounted tires, cycle fenders, wire wheels and a sharply-tapered boattail body gave the Blackhawk a racy character that a Long Island playboy would appreciate.
