Would have to chuck out at least:

Citroen DS - interesting but not beautiful
Roller and Bentley S - stodgy
Porker 356 - plain
Facel Vega - box
205 - what ALRN said
RX-7 - looks like a Hyundai
Thesis - get a look at the front of one here

I can't believe they left out the Maserati Quatroporte! Everyone raves about its stunning good looks. I also agree, take out the small boxy Peugeot.

I am glad to see Alfa well represented with two of the last 10! Well done.

Cheers,

The Duesenberg Model J is #1 for me.

All French cars should be placed on spikes to remind us why we bought Italain.

Audi... well there is plain if ever plain needed a benchmark.

Why is the 356 there and not the 911 turbo GT4?

The 159 Sportwagon looks far better than the saloon.

SAAB ! :0 When did they design something that nice?

And where's the Veyron?

These shouldn't be there...

Bugatti Type 35 .......it's a bit of bent metal to cover the engine
Rolls Royce Silver Wraith..... on it's way to a cemetery with a coffin in the back
AC Ace.... beautiful? I don't think so
Swallow Doretti Roadster.... slab sided with an ugly grill
Bentley S Series.... where's the mounting for the 75 mm gun?
Peugeot 205.... somebody's idea of a joke to see if we looked at all 50?
Renault GTA.... looks like the front is the back if you know what I mean
Mazda RX-7.... just plain Japanese ugly
2005 Saab Aero-X concept.... looks like a steam iron

Oi! we got one of those Pugs,' in white as well.:): She's called Gertrude, and to us she is beautiful, because she is reliable, economical, easy to fix, so it's the inner depth of beauty with Gertrude?:p Not just a flashy, show offy' exterior.:lol::D

I am glad to see two Alfa's at the top, the 159 and the 8C, but, a 205 and a 407!? Please! And the DS, w.t.f.?

They have not really done this very well, they have tried doing best cars from certain time periods, well, in some time periods, there just were no good cars...

Well guess she could of bin' Rude Gert, or something, like what you lot is! So stoppit! The 'E' tpe I had yonks' back, was the prettiest on stands, decorative piece of artwork I owned, I suppose? Static beauty, always needing to be fussed and attended to.:D 'E' Type clutch? Timing chains? Rear hub cork seals? Triple SU's to synchronise? Flashy Gal' like a typical well shaped woman, and a real money soak at that.:D:lol:

The 147 is to appease the Frau, she chose it! Me, Healey 3000, never managed one of those, but did manage a 100/4 so up your pipe, and smoke It?:tut:

Yeah! right, until the particulate after burner gets clogged with soot, and it runs out of puff, or the turbo charger collapses, fine piece of industrial machinery, I guess!:lol:
