Lancia Stratos Zero (1970)




And one of the most beautiful cars ever, in my opinion: Lamborghini Miura (1966)

The Venture Brothers TV show certainly borrowed a few ideas from these designs, oftentimes looking almost exactly like the original:

1967 Ford Country Squire
I used to think wood paneling was dated, but now in my opinion it's quite elegant. (On old cars only)

The 1965 Ford Thunderbird is a very mid-century modern style car, with sleek curves, yet at the same time rather angular. The thick-framed rounded rectangle tail-lights are a huge style motif of the time.

Sorry, my bad... What about this? I guess it's a bit futuristic...

Mercedes Benz W196 Streamliner (1954) Won 2 F1 championships in 54 and 55 with Juan Manuel Fangio.

Nice, the Gullwing Coupe is also a nice Mercedes from that era.

A truly space-age car is the 1950 Studebaker Champion
