At the service station I worked at we would get a reasonable number of super cars due to the fuel we sold. To me most just seem to be blobs with big wings. We also would get a fair selection of classics, Sunbeam Tiger, Mercedes 130, Cobra, Austin Healey which all look and sound so much better. There are a few exceptions to this and I think colour can help and among the half dozen or so R8's that would come in was a bronze one that just looked so right as do some of the classic remakes.
Add to this a number of MG's, Triumph TR's, Ford Mk1 Cortina and Consuls, VW beetles and an unbelievable number of VW T1 and T2 vans.
If you start with an artist and the do some changes to make the car more aerodynamic I think it will always look better than an aerodynamic blob designed by a computer programs that is then added to.
Of all the cars I have owned there are probably only three at I would go back to for style, Austin Cambridge A55 Mk2, Ford Anglia 105E and Ford Cortina Mk1. Of these the only one I would select for mechanics and handling would be the Cortina. I would happily switch back to a Mk1 Cortina at anytime, the only one of my cars I have ever regretted getting rid off.
The only photo I can find of the A55 Mk2
and the Cortina after it's respray
no photos of the Anglia.
