When talking about classic cars, everyone has their own opinion of what qualifies as the “best” car, whether it’s esthetics, performance or a combination of both with a little of this and that thrown in there, too. It will be a topic of conversation among collectors as long as people collect them.
An article on Fox News has put together a list of what they think are the five most striking classic cars. Check out what they have listed and see what you think.
1. 1935-36 Cord 810/812: Front wheel drive with an optional supercharger, the Cord was short lived because it was produced during the Great Depression era, a time with 25% unemployment.
2. 1961-67 Jaguar E-Type: Just $5600 in 1961, the E-Type reportedly made Enzo Ferrari weep and claim it was the most beautiful car he’d ever seen.
3. 1966-1967 Oldsmobile Tornado: Taking many styling cues from the Cord, the Tornado had hidden headlamps, front wheel drive, and wheel and grille designs.
4. 1974-1989 Lamborghini Countach: With desinger Macello Gandini, Lamborgini created the Countach exactly ten years after the E-Type, gaining the attention of… well, everyone.
5. 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Coupe: Hidden headlamps and alloy wheels come optional, but the split rear window made this car a standout, which was only made and sold for one year.
