It wasn't big when it was built. It was midsized.

Another one of these, sorry... '71 280SE 3.5. This particular one pretty much crushed my dreams of ever owning one. €180,000!

Oh yea, and I saw an old Jaguar E-type on the road today. Couldn't get a picture though. Was pretty much a match to the one below.
E-type pretty much shuts down the thread, don't it? I mean it's game-set-match. Best car of all time. Even according to Clarkson Island:

It's my 94 honda civic manual tran. 36 - 40 MPG and I think that's beautiful. It's very slightly beat up but that does not effect fuel economy.

Awhile back someone posted a bunch of Modern Marvels from Youtube, mostly focused around cars, that I watched... The one about "concept cars" has a whole part of the show dedicated to Buick's concepts of that era, since they were really the first in the industry to do a concept car. Was an interesting watch.

'36 BMW 328. Beautiful isn't really the first thing that comes to mind, but I really love its simplistic elegance.
