So hard to separate aesthetic beauty from functional beauty. But, if I could have some of them back I'd start here: '66 Corvette Coupe, '70 Lotus Elan, '89 BMW 325IS.....the list goes on and on. This is why I've always been broke. Then came motorcycles and bikes.

I keep looking at that and thinking "is that a perspective issue, or is that just a really big car?"

About the size of the 1992 F-350 4-door longbed my dad had when I was learning to drive, but the Bugatti is a lot heavier.

I don't know. I don't see a resemblance. That Merc isn't even a Mopar.

My neighbour runs a custom shop... you should have seen the '33 coupe that was here today.

With summer here there has been a steady stream of hot rods coming and going.

I gotcha. The pic has a dark vibe and the car looks like it's about to push through the fence.

Cutest Unimog I've seen. Used to be a military airport tug.
