Elementary --

The shocks are Watson Stabilators.

Air suspension

There are what look to be small tanks under the fenders inboard each wheel. I think they must be shock absorbers that act on the center of the spring. A few days ago there was a picture of a car with Gruss shock absorbers which acted on the end of the spring. Not to be prurient but the San Francisco ladies certainly have upgraded suspensions too. Probably from walking up and down all those hills.

Girls and Guys

Can't decide if the girl on the right looks more like Tony Curtis or Jack Lemmon in Some Like It Hot.

OK they look great sitting on the fenders - but can they dance a hot Charleston? That's what the darbs want to know.

Dealer plate

Evidently using sex to sell cars goes way back.
