    I'm a "car guy" and I love the lines of the Z8.

    I drive over the 520 bridge everyday between Seattle and Bellevue and just look for cars. Today I saw a AM Vanquish and a Ford GT. The latter was a rare gem. Saw an Aventador at the Bravern at the end of the summer. GTR's and Loti are a dime a dozen out here. Tons of moms in G wagons.

    Anyone mentioned the DB5, 1964? Form, function, class.


    Beuller?

    Yeah, I have a picture of one below my old '02. I'm not sure about it because I just can't make up my mind, but the DB5, probably is the best looking car ever (in my own not so humble opinion).

    My Dad's golfing buddy bought one of these brand new back right after I graduated HS. He let his son and I take it out for an afternoon while our dads were on the course. I only got to drive it for about 20 minutes but man, was it sweet - and powerful. The lines on that thing just exude sex. I still get to see it about once a summer at my Dad's club. Looks like it's been wiped with a diaper for 10 years.

    Good call! (I'm preferential to the silver though)
    I still call it The Jake.

    that Aston Zagato has the superlegerra (tubular space frame) chassis also (like the maserati birdcage i put on the first page) really awesome car.

    something less high performance but still super cool, the Fiat Multipla

    Speed bumps would appear to pose a serious challenge to that rig.

    i still prefer the older '56-'59 lowlight ghias... the type 3 didn't come out till '61.


    Other love: this one's a really early 1954 barndoor- i just get all giddy when i see the original Dove blue. Ahh...


    and i can't help but love the old mini's


    and the old fiat 500 abarth


    I always enjoy a good look through the micro car museum- the virtual tour is currently down cause they're having an auction, but here's the site. looks like they're about to auction off everything.

    cute little isetta...

    I'm not really a car guy but I've always had a thing for the little 2 door Mercedes like the 300SL or the 230SL


    On a side note, I had the opportunity to do a cocktails and hors d'oeuvres with a small group at Jon Shirley's garage about 10 years ago. That was awesome! I didn't take a camera but a quick google search turned up some pictures. That guy knows a thing or two about Ferrari's...

    It wasn't a speed demon but I always had a place in my heart for the '69-'73 Nissan 240z.

    Probably going to get stoned for saying that.

    It's bizarre.

    Not a fan of that Miura-like body style.

    yeah stash searcher, i guess i was not totally clear on the early history of the karmann ghia, its weird that it started with one design, went to the type 3 and then kinda back. thought the type 3 was first. lived in LA for a couple of years and a guy down the street had a type 3- pretty sweet. love the busses too would like to get a transporter at some point....

    we just gave away an engineless red '72 vw bus last week.. still have a '57 panel that just needs an engine and a once-over, and a '53 singlecab that needs a LOT of work.

    if anyone out there would like any information of any kind on volkswagens, thesamba.com is rad. history, photos, classifieds... it's kind of like the tgr of the vw world. with less vulgarity, unfortunately...

    this makes me want to go play in the garage... gotta do some cleaning and move the sandrail out of the garage so we can get back into the soon to be v-8 powered rx7 project! cause as soon as that puppy's done, i can work on my ghia again! yay!

    My orders came through. My squadron ships out tomorrow. We're bombing the storage depots at Daiquiri at 1800 hours. We're coming in from the north, below their radar.

    Some mouth-watering cars here for sure. While I love the technical feats of cars like the Veyron....(easily one of the most efficient braking systems ever engineered for a car), I in terms of a car's form, I guess I'm a traditionalist. I love the look of the euro 50s and 60s. cars...not all of them, just certain ones:When I was a kid, I swore that if I ever got a 60's 911, I have the headlight bezels painted body color and the chrome trim blackened so it would look like a "modern" 911. LoL, funny how tastes change as one gets older....thank God!!!]Other cars in my own private porn stash:Jaguar XK 140 coupeMorgan roadster...this one is the new one they're making now at the Morgan factoryThe mid-fifties Mercedes 300 SLs have already been mention, but are so classy that they deserve another mention...I have a soft spot for the 300 SL and 190 SL roadsters:Not that America hasn't put out some beauties:1963 Corvette split-window coupe: and of course no car-porn is ever complete without a centerfold of the ultimate road...the road-touring version of the incredible Porsche 917:

    We were talking about the 917 a few months ago, what an absolutely insane car.

    Just found this googling the car again just now: Bad Day At The Office!
