If you want to see some serious swoop, do a google image search for Delahaye...

I read earlier that "swoopy" as a car term can mean "smooth". Anyone ever hear that before?

     I think the term "swoopy" is intended to be more evocative than definative.  To me it conjures images of graceful, sinuous curves and aerodynamic profiles.

Hard to beat a D Jag or a 356 in it's purest form but here's my contribution. A toss up for me.

I really don't think it gets swoopier than Delahaye. But I'd put this on the list; 1938 Talbot-Lago.

I'll see you and raise you  the Talbot-Lago teardrop coupe, the Bugatti Atlantic, the Lamborghini Miura, the Ferrari 275 GTB and a bunch of other stuff that I won't bother to post images for.

I'd love to see one of those as a 1/8 scale model kit. I'd pay some serious money for one if it existed.
