What are you guys smoking? The Citroen DS is one of the most beautiful cars ever made!
Old Plymouth Valiant '60
Yes, RomanS, beautiful in a European sense, but to most Americans it looks odd. It's a classic no matter anyone's taste.
I drove Janine Cillufo's father's Pacer in the snow. It was little scary.
I had an Ambassador, that was a nice car.
You couldn;t kill those Valiants. So ugly.
My father brought home a citroen once
quite a boat, and fun fun fun for the fat kids rolling around in the back.
I drove one of these in high school. I could turn the steering wheel at least 90 degrees before the wheels were engaged to start turning. Gawd I hated that thing but that slant six seemed to be indestructible. Believe me, I tried and failed!
This was my first car the 1964 Dodge Dart. It was my Grandad's old car. Not bad, flat six engine, push button gears on the dashboard. It was an automatic, and finally the transmission gave out. A bug-eyed little tank. That car was heavy metal. I hit things as a teenager and barely made a dent in it.
AMC Pacer - no, really, a mocro-car with a V8. and a very own bizarre style. I'd take two, in fact.
AMC Eagle - I still think it's the root of all crossovers, but it's way more stylish than the common crowd.
Jetta Mk2 - I used to have one. It was a super robust car, 1.3L/55 HP. Lovely axe overall, except the inbred issue of all VAG motors, carter gases circulation.
Citroёn DS? The Goddess? Yeas please. That was the time when European cars WERE both stylish and everlasting.
Personally, I'd add Jensen Interceptor. Just like a Pacer on steroids and with a facelift ))
I was just about to say that. Now this Dodge Rampage is ugly...
The classic 'ugly' car IMO is the Lotus Seven in it's many variants. I had one for a few years and they are the most fun you can have in a car. Dave (Suthol) on this board currently drives one he built.
No man, that;s beautiful. Like the Avanti
I've had a few mk2 jetta now. The calypso green I posted was a very nice Wolfsburg. I later had a very nice red jetta I transplanted a 1.8 16v into. Talk about a fun car without breaking the law. I loved the hand crank sunroof too. Always felt like a submarine about to dive.
And I will second that, totally. Space is da place ))
Must confess, I'm a weak sucker for classic American automotive design ) Now, if I could have an 812...
I really wanted the Eagle when I was 20-22. Knew better than to buy one.
That "hand crank sunroof" thing was the stuff. I had one with my Audi-80. And I loved it!!! Most important, a moderately handy man could fix pretty much anything with a fork and foul language.
I had an audi 4000 and an original audi s4 and love old school German cars. Time isn't particularly kind to them, pretty much every bolt I had to deal with was seized and alot of break. Parts are getting scarce (at least for old audis). You pretty much have to buy two cars to keep one running.
I call foul. That car is beautiful.
