From the top, the Quattroporte is nice but a bit plain (assuming it's the right one). My dad had an amazon in the 70s. It used so much oil that my uncle used to give us old oil from oil changes to top it up with. I have a fondness for Swedish cars which may stem from that but it doesn't excite me. The Carlton is awesome, I love it when car makers go a bit crackers, but it's not really a looker. The 505 is clean and neat but possibly a bit bland. I like the 130 saloon a lot but it will always be in the shadow of the coupe. The Lagonda was my wildcard to show that AML have a glorious history of producing saloons that look slightly off. As for the Saab, I love Saabs. I love the thought that goes into them, the off the wall thinking, the care, the refusal to be slaves to convention. However, whilst the 2 and 3 door versions are really quite beautiful in a quirky Uma Thurman sort of way, the 4-door just isn't.
Oh, I've missed one. The Citroen DS. Look at it. It's radical, forward thinking, bold, exciting, different. It's from 60 years ago but it looks like a spaceship. It's the winner of the space race for cars even though there wasn't one. If that isn't enough, it is the most comfortable car you will ever sit in (if you ever get the chance, do. The interior is better than the outside). If that still wasn't enough it was even a useful rally weapon. It's name even means goddess in French.
Bonnet de douche Rodders. It has to win.
