From the feature The Automobile's Classic Decades: A Portfolio By Leslie Saalburg in Esquire magazine, 1958 / Pub. by L. I. Auto Museum, Southampton, N.Y. - Copyright 1957 Henry Austin Clark, Jr
Leslie Saalburg provided illustrations for Esquire, Apparel Arts, Town and Country, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Holiday, Collier’s, as well as other periodicals, for as long as two decades in some cases.

Saalberg drew and painted motor cars by the hundreds. Throughout his career, Saalburg illustrated them either in ads or for pleasure. However, he always thought that people did not drive their car for pleasure: “Cars are made today to take you to the station. There is no pleasure on the road, either here or in Europe. Today’s cars are a bore, too bulbous and falsely streamlined. The old cars had character; they were elegant because they were a carry-over from coaches. Their seats were more comfortable, even though the stiffer springs rendered the ride somewhat less so.”

Interestingly, Saalburg did not have a clue about cars: “I like their appearance and the pleasant nostalgia induced by examination of the older cars. I was unfavorably impressed when I learned that Citroen discharged seven hundred and fifty expert wood workers years ago on switching from body building by hand to assembly-line production. These men were coach builders.”
