but fired up fumed noxious
thank God fugacious
The late 20's, early 30's is my favorite era for motorcars. In my early 20's, I had the opportunity to "help" with the restoration of a 1929 Duesenberg Dual Cowl Phaeton that was owned by Otis Chandler of the [Los Angeles] Times. All I actually did was help bolt together the rear end... otherwise just watched one of the restoration masters, Anthony Giaimo, Sr. take the car completely apart, send parts all over the planet for refurbishing, rework or replacement, and painstakingly rebuild the car from the frame up. Below the DEFINITION is a photo of a car very similar to that Duesy.
- Lasting but a short time; fleeting.
- fleeting; transitory: a sensational story with but a fugacious claim on the public's attention.
- Botany. falling or fading early.
