Not taking in to account reliability, performance, mileage and practicality, but purely aesthetics, what are your favorites?
I repeat; this thread is about ASTHETICS*!



* If you don’t know the meaning, look it up!



--------------------------------------------------



1974-1978 AMC Matador
Get one of these in the stylish Oleg Cassini designer editions and you are one's stylin' pimp.  Smokin cool















So sharp, it made the cover of Time magazine.  Smokin cool


1982-1986 Chrysler LeBaron Convertible 'Town & Country' Edition with Woodgrain sidepanels and Mark Cross leather seating.





Sccutler owns one of these beauties.  Smokin cool

1976 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible




1964-1968 Buick Wildcat Convertible


1971-1973 Buick Riviera



My personal favorite. I own one Big grin





Two great cars in one shot.  Smokin cool

1977-1979 Lincoln Mark V
You could get these in several designer editions such as Bill Blass, Emilio Pucci, Givenchi, Cartier, Diamond Jubile and Collector's Series.




1961-1965 Lincoln Continental convertible


1966-1967 Lincoln Continental Convertible


Probably the most stylish family car of all time; The 1975-1978 Mercury Colony Park Stationwagon with 'Yatch Deck' Side panels.  Smokin cool



Cheverolet not only made a car that performed well but LOOKED good too!  Smokin cool
Hard to find one of these that hasn't been ghettoed out.  Sad


The best thing out of the United Kingdom, the Rolls Royce Silver Shadow




My favorite German car is the Mercedes 560SL Convertible.



Bring back the Concorde

For me it has to be the Holden Monaro, within 8 weeks will be on sale in the UK as the Vauxhall Monaro, better still the only thing different to the Holden version is the badge!  Smile

I find some of the cars above very bullish and unelegant, but thats personal I guess.

Those #%$& French somehow manage to design beautifull cars, as do those chaotic Italians ...

Classic Citroen Masarati SM (seventies)


Our Lancia family car is not to bad IMO:
