    Exactly. Goodboy seems hell bent on comparing apples and oranges while rationalizing his desire to own an uber-expensive super high tech car. The thing is that cars of old were designed on STYLING and beauty, then government regulations forced them into efficiency so they began looking at wind drag and all kinds of other things resulting in the modern car which basically all look the same.

    But on beauty, breeding and class alone, it sure is hard to beat a 1935 Bugatti.

    Imagine having this to cruise around in, in 1935 when others were still cruising around in Model T Fords. That was the life.

    How much will that BMW be worth in five years with 100K miles on it? How much will the classic old car be worth? Plus, the older cars are just classically beautiful. Some have great performances, but can be modded to be stellar.

    FUCK YOU then. Art and cars ARE the same thing, at least they are and can be to people who want them to be and appreciate the art of a fine automobile. Go talk to and ask Ettore Maserati, Ferruccio Lamborghini or Ettore Bugatti if there isn't art in their cars. There is art in anything of fine craftsmanship, the best wristwatches aren't the most accurate, they are the most masterfully crafted.

    BUT YOU ASKED US OUR OPINIONS, now you say this thread is only about you and YOUR thoughts on cars, so then GO TALK TO YOURSELF. Don't bother us.

    Say what?

    This 1970 Lamborghini Countach is still ahead of its time.

    I can appreciate old cars that have been restored just for their aesthetics.
    But for me driving is fun and I want the latest and greatest in handling and power.

    It's like comparing a Harley dripping in chrome to a Yamaha YZF-R3.

    I'll take the Yamaha everytime.

    Why would I try to change your mind if I don't care what you think?

    I have to agree, I remember when I was traveling all the time and National rent a car in Los Angeles's let you rent classic cars. Well I rented this convertible for a few days and I thought I was going to die driving it down the highway in traffic, it handled like a boat.
