Like the people before me, I have to say the Jaguar XJ220 and the Aston Martin DB9 are some of the prettiest cars to grace the streets. The British sure know how to design expensive cars. Also, I really find the Nissan 350Z pretty, along with the Pontiac Solstice, and the E39 BMW 5-series...


But the prettiest car ever made is definitely the 1930's Cord 810 and 812...

I'm a big fan of the querky cars like that bug, I can't really explain my infatuation with them. Most people I know can't really nail down why I like the cars I do (neither can I), I like them to be unique (not retarded like that "Unique Whips" show).
Quirky? You mean like this?

It also walks crawls and sprints jk, but on a more serious note I saw my friends uncles el camino and it looks almost identical to the look and color of that beetle if you will. I was surprised when he told me he still drives it around every now and then.

Yes, exactly like that. I was just eyeing a a rusted out (but mostly complete) '32ish Ford coupe (sitting in a friends' field)... seemed like the ideal candidate for rat ride like such. I've always wanted to build up a flathead too... I doubt I'll act on it. But, yeah, that bug is right up my alley.

I would think the first step would be to go to the title bureau...
