Best looking cars old and new

Recommended Posts

What are the best looking cars from the past and now in your opinion? Mine are both jaguars coincidentally - the current Ftype R and the old e type.

Ok, so I know this isn't a car but it's my Fav. transportation vehicle so I'm posting it up anyway :) 

 

2004 Kawasaki ZX-10R super sport motorcycle with lots of tasteful aftermarket parts installed 😍

Arguably perhaps the best power to weight ration super sport bike ever made!

I like those great big, American made cars from the 1950's.  Nice curves.  Whitewall tires.  And chrome....lots of chrome.

Yup 👍

185 mph before installing full aftermarket exhaust and fuel mapping the power commander. That will add maybe 10-15%

It get's there rather quickly too 😮

Well Reci, that means you can look but not own or ride.  We want our Reci to be around for a while.

LOL - those days are gone now. Used to ride them but no longer. They require physical and mental attributes I no longer have. I do know and admit to my limitations :) 

Where's Mustang Joe? He would be all over this thread 😋

Some never grow up. So glad you realize your limits!

^^^ Go to Havana. They're all over the place there :) 

 

The Cubans do an impressive job when it comes to body and interior work.  All those American cars that predate the embargo, and many of them still look clean.  A guy I know told me most of those cars have Mercedes engines in them; some kind of Germany to Russia to Cuba trade route they worked out.

Growing older is inevitable.  Maturing is a matter of choice.

 

Me personally, I'm still on the fence about which direction I'm going in.

I'd only be able to drive it 6-7 months of the year here tho. Guessing it's not great in the snow 😞

Be careful.  Don't get caught up in a Canadian car chase.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
