        In 1977 My Uncle age 34 then, had a 67 427 AC Cobra in red.
        I was 16  and had never saw one before, I did attend the Winternationals
        and saw the Chevys  ruled, or so I thought until I saw the Cobra  and heard its thunderous roar, at night flames shot out the pipes, which were  just below my head! That  aluminum bodied car  was so thin the pebbles off the Goodyear blue streaks  made  tiny  bumps on the rear  wheel wells.
        The dors had latches one had to open and close  before/after  the doors  closed or  mess the thin door up! I slammed it once!  as a  passenger cars door!  not again though!  The seat belts were 3 inch wide belts that had a latch!   not a clicker buckle type  thing.  The 4 speed  stick was  a short  bent looking  close ratio  4 spd   that  was almost irrelevant  due to the  explosive   locomotive  torque at any rpm in any gear!!  in 1976 Turbo Carerras   were  Hot!  We   easily   smoked  them off, with him bogging it  in 4th  at  1300 rpms,  that engine came alive, like a terrifying  demon!
        It  truly  was terrifying  to  be in that car  at wide open throttle  shifting hard  through the gears!   We routinrly hit   150-160  instantly  almost  leaving  everything  behind us even a   480 cu in  boss 429  mustang  w/12/1 comp  built by earl wade!

      I go for practicality more than vehicle appearance.  My favorite is an '87 Chevy Cavalier I had.  It would go in the snow when other bigger badder vehicles got stuck!
      And when my son wrecked it one summer day taking a curve too short,  he didn't get a scratch on him.  Angels must've been watching over him.  It had a bumper sticker on it which compelled my kids and their friends to call it the Jesus Mobile.
      It was a beautiful blue;  I'd love to have one again just like it!


      P.S.  Nice to meet you Lecie.

      I loved that Cobra, but Im older now  and appreciate   safety,  comfort
      hearing  normally,  sweet stereo, adjustable seats, leather, airbags, anti lock, traction control, .29  cd aerodynamics  etc.

      My  favorite car  bar none, a  total   athlete of a vehicle, underated , forgotten really,  as they never did sell or make  more than 15 ,000
      world wide  in 9 yrs as the companys flagship.
      A car that cost  $94,000 in 1991  and  BMW still lost $50,000  on each
      one they did build,  Rolls  Royce  used its engine  for  years as its V12!
      on Youtube there are  ones doing 188 mph  for 55 miles on the autobahn!!  outrageous video!! Its the 850i V12 coupe!  The first  factory car that came with  6 spd manual  and V12~~  before Ferarri!

    My 1963 Rambler Classic that sadly, is no longer still with me. I loved that car.

    And no, I didn't just love it because of the "twin travel beds" as they were called, although it was nice the summer I lived in my car, travelling and sleeping in state parks.

    Mine is a 1972 Ferrari Daytona Spyder 365 GTS/4.  It was the original Sonny Crocket car in Miami Vice... I'd love to build a kit car like this one day.

        This is an XK120 with a twin overhead camshaft 6 cylinder motor. It was genuinely fast, but handled about as well as a block of flats! smile A beautiful car though and followed by the XK140 and the "D" type. smile

    the Panhard et Levassor, so well built it would start and run by just tripping the magneto advance on the steering wheel.

    I saw this first hand at the Harrah collection in Reno Nevada.
    I think it was Panhard who when asked about the Rolls Royce motor, said that the Rolls had used gaskets, which he considered an excuse for poor engineering!
    More than just a car, a beautiful work of art.

    My most favorite car was an old 64 Vdub Beatle with an auto-shift transmission. Ugly as crap. bought it for 50 dollars from a guy that didn't know the only thing it needed was a 12 dollar diaphragm to fix the tranny. drove it till it fell apart.

    1968 Dodge Charter RT with a 426 Hemi engine. I fell in love with that car first by walking by a dodge dealership on the way home from High School. Then the movie "Bullit" came out with Steve McQueen. It had the all time best car chase up and down the hills of San Francisco. The bad guys drove the black Charger, and McQueen drove a 68 Mustang GT, it might have been a Shelby, I'm not sure.
    Those cars are both worth a mint restored. But the Charger is by far, the coolest car I've seen.

      I think it would surprise some people to know that about 90% of the people who drive these are women. Companies that use these huge trucks have found that men are too impatient to deal with the tediousness of driving one of these.

      Never heard of the Clenet before. If I remember correctly, there were a few different companies in the 1980's that were doing that retro 1930's luxury styling on limited production cars.
