The Most Beautiful Car Ever Made!

I remember way back in the day that a Lincoln Continental Mark lV was the coolest car there was, and green doesn't often work on cars, but I think it does here:

 

1972 Lincoln Continental Mark IV — Octane Film Cars

My first car was a 1975 Mercury Cougar XR7 in dark green with the white leather interior/top.  We affectionately called it the "Green Demon" or the "Ghetto Sled". It had the original 351 Windsor in it and less than 20k miles (this was my senior year, 1997). It looked VERY MUCH like this...

My handsomest car?  Sometime ca. 1966 I had an opportunity to buy a 1957 M-B 300 SL Gullwing for...........$4,000.  This was off of a new/used car dealer.  $4,000.  😪  And it was in just this color....

This is the most beautiful car made, and I happen to have one in my driveway. Needs a bath and to put the cover back on. I do drive it once in a while.

While I'm not reaching back to the Classics like some, to me the 2021 Grand Cherokee SRT is one sexy beast! A 6.4 Hemi stuffed inside an unassuming SUV just seems tough to beat! So for me, this is sexy, well made and what I want. (although for some reason, last year I bought the Gladiator Mojave in Sting Grey instead of the SRT) Go figure...

Love some of the classics but most important now is getting Red and White!

This was my favorite to drive back in the day.  No triggering intended.

Thanks, 30Duck! ❤️ Just like mine, except mine was a cream color with tan and brown interior--and mats that matched, instead of tire-tread black so many mats are now.

After failing the Mustang brand for decades Ford finally did it justice, nice! I had a nice old mustang, and always was interested in the latest models coming out. I actually stopped paying attention as they just kept disappointing, year after year, decade after decade.

 

Hopefully Oregon and Lanning  will bring the brand back, and do it justice again too!

 

I suppose that is what Mario is trying to do at Miami. Bring the brand back, not sure that one can be repeated.

 

Saban did it at Alabama, Riley is trying to do it at sc, and the list goes on. Well done on picking up that Mustang!

That is much like the Saab story I heard in reverse. I guy came to work for a software company, and was told he would be paid in stock options as a signing bonus. He had heard about getting a car as a bonus so he negotiated getting a car instead, quite the negotiator. He got a Saab, instead of Microsoft stock before any splits. Quite the sob story.

I like something a little more contemporary.

This is beautiful to me because-

A-its paid off.

B-it gets 26mpg in the city.

C- it gets 36 MPG on the highway.

D- because of certain issues Hyundai gave me an additionalUSC30HYC161B021001.thumb.jpg.1dda06e9731e05f5219b6b08a330c0f8.jpg 150,000 mile warranty on the engine and the dct transmission.

E- I hope it doesnt catch on fire.

F- it has paddle shifters.

My 1955 Cadillac Coupe De Ville show car, "Marilyn" at the Serbu lot across from the North Autzen entrance.

To say the least, she's a bit of an attention getter!

They didn't save Studebaker but the 1964 Avanti was sharp.

Having spent most of my life as a new car dealer I will have to agree that the body styling of the jag was outstanding, but mechanically ir was a disaster.  I remember my attorney had one and it spent most of it's time in the shop waiting for parts.  He sold the car in San Diego, because it was far enough from Portland to make a law suit kind of speedy.

Am I the only Hot Rodder on here? I love any model of 1932 Ford. From the Beach Boys album cover "Little Deuce Coupe" to this Sedan Delivery. Henry only made 418 Deliveries modified from standard Tudor sedans. Hot Rodders have recreated a few more.

During the off-season, I especially welcome off-topic discussions so the community has a bit more fun.  I will admit that I'm not a "car" guy, so I have no input here!

 

                      NOT the beautiful car...

Wow... I thought transformers were supposed to become something more, well... functional?

At one point in time I had a cotvette yellow 1969 El Camino SS, my younger bro had a green 69 Buick GS, my oldest brother a dark metallic green 68 GTO, and my brother in law almost trumped us all with his silver and black 1970 Judge.

 

Dang, I wish I had one photo of all those classics in the same driveway!

That is downright gorgeous.  There's just nothing like classic Detroit metal.

It wasn't a spectacular car, but when I saw the license plate, I wanted to congratulate the driver for making the trip over here from Hawaii.

Another beautiful example.  Personally I'd probably go with the GTO, but this would be a close second.  I hate that the Pontiac brand doesn't exist anymore.
