    Got to do some laps around Laguna Seca in a Lotus Elise a few years ago. What a fantastic little sportscar that is.

    [QUOTE=AllenG;6961610]My first car was a 1972 BMW Bavaria. The four door version of that car with slightly different body work (mine also had pie plate hub caps).
    It was a spectacular car. I put 360,000 miles on a single set of rings. The turn signal is on the opposite side of the wheel than normal. To this day I find myself reaching for the turn signal on the right side of the wheel.



    That was my first car as well! Dad paid the equivalent of about $300 for it in 1986 when we lived in Germany. It was poo brown with rust around each wheelwell. But the engine was awesome. Dual Strombergs made that thing move, unless they were out of sync, which was about once a week.

    Speaking of tubs isn't there a car that can be a boat or am I dreaming?

    You might think I'm crazy but I'm a fan of the early NSX.

    The "What will it be" thread is right, they are boring, all of them are.
    So, I got tired of looking for something practical and at the right price, and I compiled a list of what I currently think (fleeting thing) are the top ten best looking.

    No special order:


    BMW 3.0 CSI


    Aston Martin DB4/6


    BMW 507


    Citroen DS


    Jaguar E Type


    Porsche 911/912


    Aston Martin DB9


    Ferrari Dino
    omg Allen, we have exactly the same taste in cars!

    I would second the Elise as a lovely car, and throw in a TVR to round out the list.

    Don't tease, you know the way to an American's heart is through his car.

    Another whose shape I've always liked, except the OEM trailer ruins the lines.

    Imagination has disappeared from Aston. All their cars look the same. The 60's were the pinnacle of design.
