    The Austin Healy 3000

    Is the most beautiful looking car ever. I challenge you to find a nicer looking car.

    As far as looks go, I'll take the Healy over the GTO - the Healy seems classy and refined while the Ferrari comes across as too much of a boy racer.

    AH 3000's are indeed gorgeous, as are MGA's.

    My favorite, though mostly because I own one, that competes in the same timeframe:

    which is a copy of the e-type, just like the 240Z.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    The MGB Berlinette give it a run for its money. I had to look long and hard for an image of that car.

    While the Austin Healy is nice.

    Keeping it British...the standard setter, an SS-100 before the leaping cat.



    And then there are the Morgans that are still manufactured

    I'll put the Healey in the top 5...but my #1 of all time is the Jaguar E-Type.

    Somebody beat me to the Jag. I'll state that the best looking cars are sports & racing cars from the 50s and early 60s.

    In my mind the Ferrari 250 GTO, the Ford GT40 Mirage, and the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (specifically years 1965-1967) are the best looking cars ever.

    I posted a 31 Auburn and a Cord 812 in the same thread that Chris..... started at the other place, so I will not post them here. Also posted the 1963 Corvette Stingray split window coupe.

    yep, but 3 of yer 4 pics are the 100, not the 3000. I like's the 100 as well, and in many ways its more responsive to drive due to less of a boat anchor up front, but I also like's my 3000, having driven it for about 25 years now.

    So let's see your 3000! I love the 100 also.. my dad bought a brand new 1959 100-6 in Hawaii and kept it until he sold it in 1978. As a little kid, I love to drive around with him in that car!
