Thank you John. Yes that Maserati is quite special.

I grew up when these cars were being produced. They had such style. The modern Ferrari's and Lamborghini's are technical marvels but they don't have the "soul" that these old'uns possess. The Fiat Dino is another classic I had never seen before.

I wish I knew Phil. I do not know enough about bikes to even begin.

There are a few motorbike posters on this forum...hopefully they will know.

Great shots all, but No. 2 does it for me, those sweeping lines. I can only imagine the rorty sound it must make.
Be well, stay well.

A great set again, Peter. No. 2 is my favourite photographically, but the Fiat Dino is the one I'd love to own. I really should have bought one back when the prices were still sensible, but I opted for the even more sensibly priced 124 Spider.

These remind me of a tale told to me by a client; in his outbuilding he removed the dust sheet from a pristine pale blue Ferrari convertible from the 1970s (sorry not an aficionado so donít know the model). He remembered as a boy living in Switzerland and driving with his dad to the Ferrari HQ in his Aston Martin and challenging them to show their cars would do better on the winding mountain roads. The chief engineer took him out and afterwards he bought one on the spot! That was the one he inherited.

What is it about classic cars and the way they look. What happened to car designers, they lost their way! They need to look back to this era and start making cars with lines like these again

A for sure. No, wait, B. Sorry, I meant A, yes definitely A. Decision made. Yes, A. There again, B is simply stunning. So it's B. Yep. Definitely B.

Hang on a minute, A... (continue ad infinitum)

Literally a stones throw away from where I live is a car manufacturer who have kept their designs pretty simple and "classic" - anyone heard of the Morgan Motor Company
