It's certainly not cool in the way that something like a Porsche 356 is cool. However I reckon it would put a smile on people's faces because it isn't all intense and serious. As a bit of fun, I think it's just about cool.

The only way to make it cool is to constantly have Bohemian Rhapsody on repeat.

Do you know what .. I have never thought the Porsche 356 was cool.

It's always struck me a bit knowingly minimalist and snooty - give me an early 911 Targa any day.

It was terrible then....and still is. Awful shape, terrible proportions.

I wouldn't say it's hateful but it isn't cool.

I think it looks like a cross between an Alfa Brera and an Austin Allegro


Not good, and very uncool.

Here's a nice example . Wouldn't have chosen this colour to spend 55k restoring
