I would agree with that one, Oldsmoboi.

Not sure how a Checker made the list.

The Checker Marathon is most definitely a cool car.

'59 Cadillac anything should be on there.

DeLorean DMC-12 should be on there.

Chevy Van should be on there.

Miata should not be on there. Not that it's not a good car, I just never really saw it as "cool".

Neither I nor my family have ever had any of the cars on that list.

I love driving this car in rally games but I really hate looking at it. So here's some pain for the rest of you.

I haven't owned a single car on that list.

I'm with you...but it's like a who's who of cars I'd LIKE to own. Including the Checker (although I'd prefer a Superba wagon).

Add in the AMC Pacer Wagon, deTomaso Deauville, original MG TF, Northstar Cadillac Allante, Shelby GLH-S, and a Bugatti Type 42 Royale, and you'll get the idea of what my Billion Dollar dream car collection would be like.

Glad someone else loves the TF.

Yes, but you might not want to align your tastes to mine. Did you miss the Pacer wagon in my list?

Came REAL close to owning a '51 Hudson, tho it was a Pacemaker, not a Hornet.

Interesting, but I'd toss a bunch off of there (and fix the mistakes).

1963-65 Buick Riviera

1966 Olds toronado

Yes....

and yes.

I think that the Toro gets in on the list because of the FWD but, conceptually, it's another large personal luxury coupe like the Riv. Regardless, I like both of these.

Any reason the original Seville (1975) isn't on the list? Maybe because it borrowed an Olds Rocket 350 and added TBI. But what a step for Cadillac and what a nice car the notchback Seville was, prior to it losing its identity and not knowing what it was supposed to be.

I personally thought the Nissan GT-R getting #9 was BS. Sure it's fast and all, but how in the crap does it get ranked above a '63-67 Vette, the original GTO, '68 Mustang fastback, Ford GT40, etc. in cool factor? Those cars have all earned their place in the automotive history book, while this car has been on sale for what, a year?

I agree, Camino.

It would be a boring world if we were all the same.
