If one ventured onto a racing circuit in the late-1920s, especially in Europe, there was not a lot of shiny paint to be seen. Fabric bodies, developed by Frenchman Charles Weymann, were all the rage. Replacing clunky, cranky metal panels with sheets of padded fabric, usually Zapon imitation leather, over cotton-padded wood created an automobile with a unique matte finish that was somewhat soft to the touch. Weymann patent bodywork was durable and quiet. More importantly, it was lightweight, which meant that cars equipped with it were rapid indeed..
