"Sea breeze ! Very dejected after Professor Calculus was kidnapped, Captain Haddock regains his liveliness when the police inform him that a garage owner saw the kidnappers’ car taking the direction of Saint-Nazaire. Together with Tintin, they launch on their tracks at the wheel of this beautiful American automobile. A gorgeous convertible! The only car ever owned by Captain Haddock, the Lincoln Zephyr is one of the symbols of the first aerodynamic vehicles of the ‘30s. Its tear-shaped profile and fluid curves allow for high velocity.
