  4. If you look at the sticker price on both cars then it is easy to tell them a part. The Vette is probably around a third the price. Just sayin.

    Its a little something they use to refer to as "style" , sadly its a lost art in the traditional auto market these days.

    I think it's tied for the best looking care ever made with this. Ferrari Dino 245GT. If you were born in the 60's, this was your version of heaven.

    You'll have to pick between the 440/6 or the Hemi, since you can't fit both under one hood. ;)

    The car in the pic is the Hemi, although I wonder how it can run with such a tiny air filter on it.

    No he replaced it with the 65 SS396 Impala. That 58 would pass everything except a gas station:roflmao::roflmao::roflmao:

    I'd rather have the 65 Impala. The 396 was new for that year, the old 409 was also an option in 1965.
     
  15. So many beautiful cars have already been mentioned.

    I'll add the first generation American Motors AMX, from 1968-1970.

  16. And the 1968 American Motors Javelin as well. This Javelin had a 109" wheelbase, and was a four seater. (Just barely.) The AMX in the post just above was it's two seater variant which had a 97" wheelbase.

    And skipping from Ferrari (that one above isn't a GTO) to Pontiac:
