    Pretty but I still prefer the E-Type. Fingers crossed for good weather for the Revival in September :)

    Love or lust? I don't care - I'm in both!


    PS Time to buy a lottery ticket?
  5. As beautiful as it is the only one for me is the AC Cobra. Weirdly my grandfather used to work for AC Cars at Thames Ditton back in the 50's as a Paint sprayer. He used to spray the chassis and bodies of the AC Ace which later became the Cobra after Carroll Shelby got his hands on it.

    I'm sure this is a generational thing (or not) but It is my humble opinion that the height of automobile design (as opposed to technology) was reached in the mid 20th century. I love the idea of a classic 1950s or 60s design being made available with modern running gear. When Ford redid the Mustang in a retro vein a decade ago, I was hoping they'd go use the smaller 1964-66 body as their template. They went with the 1967-68 design instead which wasn't bad. But Ian's Mark 2 is great: Inspector Morse on steroids.
