Blah, too many supercars being posted. Too much flash for me.

I prefer something simpler... like a Datsun 240Z or 280Z.

"Eco" or aero or otherwise, I actually think the Avion is a handsome shape.


It visually conveys its slippery reality, in an effective way.

I really like the Ford o21c concept, because there's nothing else out there even on the same page. Instead of trying to look faster and meaner and more aggro than anything else, it's just fun. Hell, I'm a hetero male who owns a V8 powered Jeep and I'd happily drive an o21c, in hot pink with a string hanging out the tailpipe.


I also really like the first generation Montero/Raider/Pajero appearance... it's completely utilitarian but somehow endlessly endearing. Yes, I used to own one of these and yes, we went on lots of adventures together so maybe I'm just nostalgic.


I think the Eagle SX4 and Local Motors Rally Fighter are both good looking cars for about the same reason... they have a sleek athleticism about them, fast and tough. Everything I wish my own body was capable of



One of my favorites, of all time... the AMX/3 .. damn sexy from any angle.

Here's a few more of my favorites:




Can you tell that it was performance that got me into the automotive world . I genuinely find fuel economy to be just as interesting as other forms of performance.

I've been trying to talk my buddies into letting me drive one of them.

Here is the subaru:

Suspension, too.
