Cool Automobiles
« on: July 10, 2006, 07:42:25 am »
I start this topic because I remember that EB had an infatuation on cool cars and I am gonna start.

The link provided is a slide show of medium American cars: I like slide 10

Ah! It has one of my dream cars!  ;D

the CHRYSLER 300C

everytime I see this car (one of the few cars that looks better in the flesh rather than on posters) I love it more

Best American Cars
Is it just me, or is this an oxymoron?   :(

Browsing Forbes website I seen the list for their 10 fastest autos, there not all American but there are more than one in the list. Now I'm not going to add a photo & specs of each car so I'll just put the link in, do chime back and tell us which car you like best.

Might be of interest.
Austrian police are testing a Porsche 911 as a traffic control car to help prevent motorists from speeding. A spokesman said the £65,000 car, that can do up to 177mph, had been a major success and they are planning to buy more.

Only 177mph , Beats my ugly French car by 5 mph lol
cheers

That's because that's the 10 fastest cars.

And the fact that the Chrysler was released earlier than 2006  ;)

Just to keep KYO happy I have just got rid of my "ugly French car" the Picasso, which I must say has given me comfort/space and reasonable fuel consumption.
Moving on tmw to the Renault Scenic 1.5 dci 86bhp. No key to start motor,just a card. Loads of room all the extras,what a difference. 0-60 in 3.4 secs ;)
And it`s French lol
cheers
