ISO Grifo

Italian immortal 60s GT style - with a 'Hemi engine!

Does it get any better?

That's pretty, but this one's in the Country Music Hall of Fame:

The 1st series of Jaguar E-Types jump to my mind first. Not really the later ones, but the ones with the tube bumpers, LONG hood, and oval grill. and I remember seeing one in the mid 60's as a kid and just thinking that it was the most amazing thing I'd ever seen.

E type was, & still, my childhood hero

But that thing is more badass with the Hemi

That's a truly beautiful car!

The only problem I'd have with one is the 7 months of Winter in which I wouldn't get to drive it. Having vehicle like that is all about location, sadly.

To each his own, I guess. I prefer the E-type Jag over the ISO Grifo...



In any event, I think the Maserati Ghibli has better lines than the ISO does:

To me the ISO Grifo looks like a re-bodied Corvette Sting Ray from that era.

I was thinking about my post above and seeing the E-Type at the time.

My uncle lived across the street from us and was "Mr Playboy". Good looking, never married, great job ($), total motorhead... He drove a new 65 TVR Griffith 200 at the time and would drive my brother and I to our little league games and anyplace we wanted to go in it. I remember being 7yo and telling him I'd seen a Jaguar and I just went on and on about it. A week or so later I going someplace with him on the highway and he said, "Hey remember talking about that Jaguar you saw? Can it do this??" And he nailed that thing. I have NO idea how fast we were going, but it was SICK fast. Like, just peg you in the seat fast.

I didn't mention the Jaguar to him again, but I still thought they looked so sweet...

This is just like asking which is the most beautiful guitar in the world.
For me, though, the ISO looks droopy at both ends.

I love many cars that I think are truly beautiful, and the E-Type Jaguar is right up there, but even more I loved the D-Type. Both the racing model and the street model were excellent.
