All the time and money they spent on those concepts and they still look like fucking Buicks!

I would hope for something a little less Buicky.

There's a word for people like you.

Clinical terms, most of them.

It's nice to know that you are concerned about my health.

While we're on the subject, it hurts when I do this.

No it wasn't.  The bumper guards were chrome, not rubber, and it had only two headlights.

I don't like either of them. But if you forced me to pick one, I'd go with the 56.

Didn't all 1956 American cars have just two headlights?

I remember the first time I saw an Eldorado. It was in 1956 and I thought it was beautiful. Have you noticed that the fins on the 1956 Eldorado were used for all 1957 Cadillacs? They were, as I recall, the first ostentatious fins.

This chrome XKE must be hard to drive in the sun.

It's just polished aluminium, but yeah, you want some eclipse glasses to drive that one.

I like some of the comments.

I’ve been saying this for years, Cobra’s are too common, so they just look ordinary. and they are completely useless if the sky is anything other than cloudless. But a good Daytona looks like a E type and a 250GTO had a baby and started it on a regular regimen of steroids as a small child.

That's a Shelby Daytona Coupe. Isn't it?

I don't know what you mean by "Don't kid yourself," but that is not an E-Type. It is a Daytona.

Not bad, not bad at all.  Has a BIT too much of the Lamborghini/Batmobile sharp angles thing going on, and a few too many "portals" in the skin...  but not bad.

No doubt it is stupid-fast and stupid-expensive too.

Perfect answer for the name of this thread.
