What a shame us members in Europe can't access the site with this list of beauties, Dare.  :(

You'll just have to type up the whole list for us, Dare.  ;)

With your one/two fat finger method we'll see you in a week.  :P  :D

The James Bond Astin Martin is there as expected. Several
Ferrari's with one being the most expensive car in the world
valued at 75 Million. Jag XKE. I'd go no but I'm losing my train
of thought. You'll be there next year John

In the commentary, he called Bond's DB5 a convertible.  :confused:

They included the recent Ford GT but not the original. They included the Citroen DS, but not the Cobra GT coupe. They did not include any Talbot-Lago aero from the '30's. They included the Ferrari 250 GTO with the truncated roof instead of the original fastback, the Lotus Esprit I like but the Saleen S7 not so much. And against my personal taste 4 Lamborghinis.  :DntKnw:

Not you, Dare. The guy who wrote the captions under the pictures.

If I were to pick a production Lotus, I'd have gone with a 60's Elan or Europa. I would have picked any of the 54 Vette's contemporary competitors (2 seat T-Bird, Kiaser Darrin or Nash Healey) ahead of it.

My personal choice for most beautiful car ever: The 1931 Bugatti Type 41 Royale Victoria Cabriolet with coachwork by Weinberger.

I always loved the Europa. My college roommate had one for a while, what a great car. Isn't this better than a Citroen DS though?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder Lonny, to me that Talbot Lago looks more like an eggmobile.  ;)


This gets my vote,  :yahoo: take a look at the shed space at the back.  :crazy: 
Just right for blending in around the British countryside, - well Lincolnshire (and maybe Kent) anyway.  :D

That is a very nice station wagon, as we Yanks say, isn't it?
