    The 1970's. When American cars were overweight and underpowered.

    Germany brings us -- The Mercedes Benz W116 450 S Class
    215 hp Fuel Injected V8. 4 wheel disc brakes and fully independent suspension.

    The 450 SL (convertable) is the iconic one:

    My best friend in high school had a '70 in that color (I think, although that pic looks a little darker than what I remember his looking like), with a 383 in it though. He was part of a street racing scene and often traded for other muscle cars for the weekend, so I got to drive most of the iconic ones without any of the hassles of ownership. A few other good friends back then did the sports car thing, which I tended to prefer for bumming driving time in. Yel_wink.gif

    As an avid motorcyclist, the Ariel Atom beckons me like a redheaded siren. How could this not be fun? Want!

    Awesome.

    In the 60's there was a Jaguar dealer in my neighborhood. On nice days they would park all their new XKE's out in front of the building, along with a few Sunbeam Tigers. I had to walk past them on my way to school. Stopping to gawk made me late for school more than a few times. It was worth it.

    My second car was a 1961 Ghia hardtop. Wish I STILL had it! I've had a bunch of VeeDubs-I think they fantastic. In the market for another bug right now, but boy have they appreciated.
