Beautiful Cars
 
I've been searching for a new car for too long.
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:

Lamborghini's first cars, the 350GT and 400GT, were gorgeous cars.

Yes they were. And the last pretty cars Lamborghini made (I don't care for the Mura).

You may not agree, but mid 60 vette's are awesome IMO.

I like the first generation Vette, after that they start to loose it for me. The current one's headlights remind me of a Miata.

Love AC's bodywork, and you cant go wrong with Carol's engine work.

Old Thunderbird - used to have one in Orange in the town I grew up in.

Ex brother in law had a 56 corvette - sa-weeeeet looking - then he put nitris in it. There is Nothing like riding in a car that seems like it is only 2 inches from the ground with no shocks at XXX eeeekers mph!!!!

But my still all time fav ... sigh ... be still my beating heart .... (weird freaking color - but that's what they were doing in the early 70's)

I love big muscle engine cars - and still do - and I frequent the car shows and drags. Love them.



Oh yeah - and my first ever car was a pea green Mach I.

I can recommend a good eye doctor for you.

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.

A friend of mine had one in high school. It was the odd jewel in a Chevy vs. Ford world. Shhh--you can hear a Peugeot rust.

No denying they're distinctive, and made with care. Just not my aesthetic.

I hear ya. Slightly angled shoe boxes are an acquired taste.

Going to have to throw an honorable mention to the Lotus Elise, as it is about the only true unapologetic sports car currently on the market.

I don't think the Alfa Romeo Spyder is apologetic either, old or new.

But you don't have to exit them by crawling onto the ground and then standing up.

Wordbiker 06-27-08 10:56 PM

Beauty is certainly in the eye of the keyholder. ;)

A lot of you have bad taste:)

A sweet car we formerly owned. I loved it, but am I glad we sold it before the gas prices shot up! "Behaving" on a good day would get 10mpg!
