Folks have already posted the Aston Martin and Jaguars, but I think the Volvo P1800 are classic looking cars

71 Buick GS - The last time I would ever own a Buick - but my dad bought it then gave it to me when I graduated high school 8 years later. Came in a 350 and 450 hp version that year with a Holly 4 barrel carb and Hurst shifter. My Dad loved that car and it was what I learned to drive in. I'm also lucky I didn't kill myself in it.

Before this photo, I wasn't familiar with this car. It's really cool, so I looked it up online and liked what I saw. I saw one parked on the street yesterday. Not too shabby. It looked original, so it didn't have the body work that this one appears to have. But it still looked cool.

I've been looking into buying a classic care and fixing it up. My dream car is a 65 Mustang Fastback. I then saw this 63 Falcon that was awesome. But now seeing this Volvo, I wouldn't mind buying something like this and turning it into something. So I'm wondering, what would it take to turn this black Volvo into one like the silver one?

Yeah, the only reason I know about them is my father loves them. He actually wishes he got one in the late 60s vs. his jaguar XKE. Volvo is bringing a coupe back that actually inspired by the P1800, it's really really cool (though it is similar to Audi A5/S5 in it lines).

Sorry the video doesn't work. You can get a California car for between 5 to 15. The big issue is rust under the back wheel wells and replace the chrome. The engine isn't that hard to work on but you need to check the transmission the clutch.

Mint 1969 Mustang Shelby GT500 found in garage, up for auction

A 1969 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 428 Cobra Jet was found under 40 years worth of dust, in otherwise mint condition, in a Pennsylvania garage. The kicker? It only has 8,531 original miles on it.

Those Vector W8's were badass supercars on steroids. The had a twin turbo V8 with like 700hp or something insane like that. I also like the looks of those Lotus's but I think they came with a 4 cylinder engine, or did that one you have a pic of come with a V8?

thats the 2001 model which had the v8. i do love the 2.4l inline 4 that lotus produced. I think the best one was the 95 S4S. This was also the last year they produced the 4 banger and replaced it with the v8. I don't consider it a super car because lotus was known for their reliability in respect to other exotic sports cars. It was also very easy to service.

I remember one day my brother coming home from a trade show and brought be a poster of the vector. i would just stare at the photo for hours. supposedly, vector was a aeronautics company that transitioned to super cars. they used alot of their knowledge on the W8 and it shows with the shape and design.
