Re: Best Retro car

The prefacelift 147 helped
kick off the retro styling in Europe

I'd say the Dodge Charger if they
ditched the rear door handles!

Re: Best Retro car

I might be in the minority, but I hate the 500

Could be because I used to be a Mini nut !!!

Re: Best Retro car

500 - but I have some lingering doubts about it.


I thought the new Mustang was pretty well done.

Detest the new Beetle.

You don't want to start me on that one, German thieves !!

The compact BMW isn't a Mini.......

Re: Best Retro car

Would have loved to have voted for the Lancia Fulvia, but they didn't build it.
I Like the 500 though, gets my vote.

Prowler (by a mile) of the cars listed. Magnificent, anachronistic...

Re: Best Retro car

It depends upon what is meant to by "best".

I we mean best looking, the "new" Mini, closely followed by the 500. Both in white.....
