Dieselpunk: Streamlined Stuff

I recently discovered Dieselpunk, a blog devoted to images of art deco and streamlined . . . well, anything.  One example is this photo of a 1937 Fiat 1500.  Also featured in the blog are scans of old art deco advertisements as well as images of modern art deco/streamlined-inspired machinery and design.  Very cool stuff.
