Impala. Current day cars (hired one a good few years back in the US) are hopelessly Shiite.
I just don't like the Bugatti.

This isn't looking like a very decidey decider. If this is a tie my fallback is to ask my wife.

That's not the best Impala. The 1965 to 1970 models are all better-looking than the 1964, but the 1964 is still better than that particular Bug.

The temptation to tie the vote again is irresistible!

That's​ clearly going to go in the Impala's favour with the false promise of a new pair of shoes.

What can I say? It's a bit 'orses fur courses' really.
I think you can see from my nominations, that I love the lines of this type of car. (Type 57c)
You can also see from my voting history on the cool wall that I am no fan of US 60s-70s muscle.
But I do respect the (albeit wrong) opinions of others.
Just enjoying the entire tournament, so all is good with me.
Thx again for doing this.

I do like a lot of older, vintage cars in a way I never appreciated when younger. But the Bug is incoherent.

Impala.

Exactly that.

It's not a great example of swoopy pre-war coachbuilding. Interesting and quite pretty, but not a harmonious design.

The big question now is has Keithy had has Horlicks and nodded off or will he step in to tie it at the death? He may have been kidding us all along and may not actually prefer the silver cross pram contraption at all.
