Cool, but this era doesn't really do much for me personally.

Cool. Not sub-sero, just cool. Especially for those of us who remember Vegas where Robert Urich used to park his red '57 in his living room.

Oh yes. I was only reminding my other half a couple of days ago about how I could achieve that

Just struggles into cool in stock form, because it's a bit classic-car-show / too 'nostalgia'. The wheel / tyre combo doesn't scream performance, and nor does a 2-speed auto. I think most '50s American cars only reach their coolness potential when hotted up a bit.

Just about cool I reckon. Not my cup of tea at all looks wise and the performance is insipid but that's not everything with a car like this. More boulevard cruiser than drag strip king, Grand Tourer to crush a continent or circuit funster. Just pootle around Beverly Hills? It'd be cooler be driven by an attractive woman than a man.

I don't like it but I don't have to like it for it to be 'just about cool'.

You could have some amusing diversions in one,
until your father confiscated it....

One would, however, have to walk, look and drive like an ace in order to pull all of that off.
