Talking The car in the movie Metropolis?

I found a link to the 1923 car used in the filming of Metropolis here somewhere and have now lost it. Anyone remember the name of the car or a link to it? Thought its aero shape might make an efficient boat tail trailer for a stepvan.

I looked up the movie on Netflix, and have decided to add it to my queue. Sounds like something I'd like.

I may have to watch on Hulu. No reason to order a DVD if its online. I keep forgetting that Hulu has movies too.

Good movie, the 2007 Metropolis was also very good. Not in any way related to the 1927 film though.

I missed the chance to see Metropolis on a big screen with a live orchestra providing the music. Tickets were pricey and I was a poor college student, but I wish now I'd gone anyway.
