Intimidating looking cars
It's a car of unparalleled stance and presence, with the countenance of a chopped and channeled locomotive. Extravagant in concept, it's beautifully restrained in detail. 1932 Ford Three-Window Coupe: It was a junior Duesenberg. 1933 Ford Cabriolet: A slightly stretched wheelbase made the '33 Ford a bit more aggressive than the '32. 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso: Ferrari's shark-nosed, fastback-roofed luxury car: an invitation to speed across Europe with a supermodel at your side. And the chrome side decorations are pure Buck Rogers. 1948 Cadillac Series 62 Club Coupe: The first Cadillac with tail fins, with the road presence of a P-38 strafing a German convoy. 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL: The greatest road car of the 1950s from the big star in front, across the twin-speared hood, over the ovoid cockpit and back to the tapered tail. 1970 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am: There's plenty of Ferrari in the second Firebird. The first bedroom wall poster car ever, it has defined automotive lust for three generations.
The hood has almost infinite louvers and the roof provocatively tapers down to the rear bumper. It's one clean bullet with faired-in headlamps and taillights that practically disappear. 1987 Ferrari F40: Built to celebrate Ferrari's 40th anniversary, it took the midengine, V8-powered car to the edge of reality with a scraping nose, a huge rear wing and more NACA ducts than almost any other car. The roof is low, the hood ridiculously long, and the rump is perfectly arched.
Perfectly proportioned with three vents in the rear fenders to tie with the classic 250 GTO. Its bold front grille seems to be almost grinning in delight of what lies ahead. 1965 Ford Mustang 2 2: The fastback roof completes the pony car and sets the stage for Shelby's GT350. 1965 Pontiac GTO Hardtop: For just one year the GTO comes with clean, upright styling, stacked quad headlights, taillights hidden under chrome streaks and a subtle, perfectly shaped hood scoop.
