Cars and other vehicles

I think it could be a good idea to have a thread dedicated to our favorite cars.
I'm not an expert at all but recently I discovered this beauty:








built in 1948 by Norman Timbs, the Buick Streamliner disappeared until it was found in a desert (!) in 2002, sold for 17000 $ and restored.




it's incredible that such an incredible work of art disappeared like this. I think it could be the most beautiful car I've ever seen.

It looks so cool! But it is a huge waste that there is only one sit.

it probably has other problems like the lack of rear-view mirrors (one of the reasons its lines are so clean) but it's for two persons

The AC Cobra, or Shelby AC Cobra is an Anglo-American car, produced since 1962.
It looks amazing in blue color, but I'd like it in British racing green, too.

The famous British beauty - Aston Martin DB5, released in 1963. I really like the windshield.

For a modern affordable car, I think the Mazda 6 is just gorgeous.

For a modern car I'd choose Tesla Model X, it's an electric vehicle, however it doesn't qualify as affordable. I like the design, especially the falcon doors, but I couldn't afford it. It's still a nice car that probably fits this thread.

I'm back to the classics with another British car which I perceive as art. It's the Jaguar XKSS, production started in 1957.

Here's the uncommon/remarkable Lamborghini Aventador, production started in 2011. I really like it in this unconventional chocolate color.

...and here's the retro beauty - Lamborghini Countach produced from 1974 to 1990.
The design somehow reminds me of the 80's, especially its headlights. I like the car fenders, too.

Speaking for the 80's, here's another car.
The Ferrari 328 GTB is a cool hidden headlight car from the 80's.
Production: 1985-1989.
I just love those eye-like hidden/pop-up headlights. I think the best thing about cars and other vehicles from the 80's is how retro-futuristic they look.

Smooth and pristine. I really like the shape of the upper part, around the windows.

Snapped a nice 1959 DeSoto Fireflite recently.

To spot something like that on the streets it's like spotting some sort of art on the streets.

Yeah it really stood out. There's an early 70s Riviera near it that I will try to photograph as well.

I've just googled a 1963 Buick Riviera. Such an impressive car.

Another American beauty from the 80's (by now it's obvious I really like cars from the 80's). The next one has a striking design with Falcon doors. I think the wheels really complement the overall design.
The DeLorean DMC-12 manufactured from 1981-1983.
