You're wrong. The A330 is a graceful, beautifully sculpted piece of art. The Mercedes is much too masculine and stiff to go with the A330. A Jaguar fits with it perfectly.(A slightly older one)

737-200=AMC Gremlin

Ford Galaxy? Please, the 747 revolutionised air travel. It is large yet manouvreable and extremely graceful, even in it's age. The Ford Galaxy certainly doesn't come to mind.

How about the Cadillac Broham for the 747. Very big and luxurious.

747=Toyota LandCruiser/Lexus LX470 (depending on airline!)

Large, versatile, but very comfortable.

A real monster.

I've always likened my Honda Accord EX V6 to a 757...wishful thinking I guess.

SAAB actually uses military aircraft allusions to sell their cars, with the Viggen actually being named for one. It is also one of the few instances where an aircraft manufacturer made cars as well (the companies are not affiliated any more). I think that the Saab 9000 is closer to the Saab 2000 plane because both rocked but sold quite poorly. The 340 is a 900 because both sold for a long time in many revisions and iterations. Both are no longer produced. My 2 cents anyway.

Afay1 brings up an interesting point: airlines as well as aircraft and automobile manufacturers have always been linked. General Motors once controlled Curtiss-Wright as well as TWA and Eastern airlines. GM later manufactured Allison turbine engines used in Convair 580s. Ford, of coarse, started one of the first passenger airlines in the U.S. and made the famous Trimotor airliner. American Airlines was once controlled by E. L. Cord of Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg fame. Commercial aircraft engines have been made by Rolls Royce, BMW, Maybach, Lycoming and others. Harley Earl, one of the most famous auto stylists of all time, designed Eastern's DC-7B interiors as well as Convair's 880. Beech promoted it's Plainsman luxury car after World War II but never put it into production. Franklin found more success in helicopter engines than in its air-cooled cars. I'm sure there are a lot more links.
