Mid/Late 60s car-designs are my favourite : 1967 Fiat Dino Pininfarina
The Studebaker Avanti....incredible style and WAY ahead of its time. I don't have a photo, but most of you know what I mean.
Agreed! Oozes style
I hope no one mentions the Pontiac Aztec....
That's not a car... its an abomination.
I don't hate the Aztec. There is honesty to its ugliness
I find it purposeful & forward thinking
Bear in mind - I love the AMC Gremlin! so there's that
The Firebird III concept car.
THe GODESS - indeed
As weird as THE guitar!!!!
Another Citroen, the SM:
The Chrysler Turbine.
I assembled a kit of this courageous beast.
My favorite of my uncles 4 Alphas. His had an all aluminum body hand built for the Mille Miglia . But he let his future wife drive it once
Not too weird . . . but I always liked the lines of the Volvo P1800
It's funny how much that shares with the '67 Camaro. Corporate espionage?
I knew a Cirtoen guy!
His suspension was, I think, pneumatic and individually adjustable for all 4 wheels.
He liked to drive past us with 1 wheel up off the road.
I had never made the connection, but they do indeed shares some of the same lines.
Ever drive one?
Look how tall the doors are.
When sitting in the cockpit, the top of the door was about at my chin.
I felt like a kid again!
No biggy...just a surprise that took me some getting used to.
We have a Nissan Cube at the farm where I live.
After getting used to it, I really like it.
I’ve got the petrol version of it.
of the cars I've owned, my 1996 subaru svx was the most beautifully weird.
basically, it's a giugiaro designed italian sportscar engineered and built by subaru.
It was built for aerodynamics and a high top speed, and you can tell when you drive it. I once took my svx to 136 mph on a straight empty road in the middle of nowhere. not only was it incredibly stable and safe feeling, it was ready to keep accelerating. the best thing about this car was cruising on the highway. the acceleration from 40-60 and 60-90 was amazing, and it felt like the car was just settling in at 90. It was incredibly stable at highway speeds, and it was really stable in heavy rainstorms because the crosswinds had no effect on it.
The interior was also designed by giugiaro, so it has an italian sportscar seating position. you sit on the ground, with your legs wedged between transmission and the wheel arch. you feel everything on the road (in a good way) and it gives you an increased sensation of speed, but it's also mildly terrifying at times.
The svx was my first car, I got it used in sophomore year of high school for $3500. This car was fast and very fun to drive, but it had some minor design flaws. They were using a new forging technique to get the detailed curves, edges and flares in a single piece of metal, which resulted in the car weighing 3500 pounds, equivalent to a 60's buick. unfortunately, they fitted it with the brakes from a 1992 impreza.
