A car that can be dropped from an airplane and survives should be good.
Fun to see how this topic evolves from a worst into a favourite car topic. As a kid I were really car addict. Already from baby. It all vanished a bit when bicycling took off for me. I were particularly interested in tall luxury cars ...or grand tourers. Have been to a track one time. Didn't like the amount of men, square meters of tarmac and noise
Over the years my taste devolep slightly more towards track cars, but more as concept, not for their purpose.
Okay. Kind of shortlist. Any list on favourite cars should start with a Bugatti
In my case a T35, simply in blue.
2nd spot for the Jensen FF. Tough car ideal for a guy my age. I love the fastback design. FF, not because of the 4wd, but because of the slightly longer nose.
3rd spot for the Frank Stella CSL (the one with the grid). I am not really a Bimmer fan, but the CSL is absolutely among the tastiest and it is great engineering. The Stella contribution makes it an ultimate 'piece of art'.
4th: Maser Birdcage. Great make with solely nice cars in their history. Birdcage: I can't think of a better name for a car with tubular chassis.
5th Any Bristol: Such Cool. Not really a polished diamant. If you believe that beauty is in imperfection: This is your car. Of course Mr. Crook will tell you a different story. Will not soon get bored of that car.
6th: Black Saab 900 T16S. An economical, pratical car among the others. Simply stylish. Great bike carriers.
7th spot for a very very deep gloss black 60s Lincoln or Imperial
Well, enough. Could go on and on, but than isn't a shortlist anymore. Oh, forgot the modern. Actually I do not really know. Cars is something from the past
Well, maybe a Audi Avantismo, but the never started making that thing. Or a C6 Familiale would be a good idea.
