  • OT Most Unturdlike Car

    Everybody has a favorite. Here's mine



    Used to have a '68 with 390 like this one. Fast enough for me

    Now what's yours
    Forty plus years and I still have ten toes, ten fingers and both eyes. I must be doing something right.

      Here is my un-turd.

      Back when the shop had PLENTY of room, not like that anymore.

          I like 70 Novas. Mine is parked for the winter but this looks something like it, except I have all blacked out brightwork and it's painted a very dark green.

            I always thought the AMX was underrated Spin Doctor.

                Darn
                I wish that I had pictures of both of em.

                #1 was a 57 Chev rag top factory 245 hp.
                There wasn't a Patrol car in the area that
                could catch it.

                #2 was a 67 Ford gal 500 rag top with 390.
                Quite a bit slower.

                  Here's a cool car:

                  http://galeria.forocoches.com/data/5...Shark_1961.JPG

                  My favorite though:

                  Mako Shark II Concept Car





                  Failing the above:

                  1968 L88



                  Or 1969 ZL-1 (the rarest corvette ever produced - this one is not an original, the original two were yellow and white)




                  Here's where i stole the picture from:

                      So what's your opinion of the new one? Are they going to be raced?

                        I like the new one too but it isn't as no-compromise as the old Mk I and the Mk II. It was, in my opinion, the finest sports car ever produced in North America. It proved it by whipping the best of the rest twice at Le Mans. Corvette and Cobra aren't in the same catagory and nothing else comes close for an actual street legal production car.

                          I certainly don't want to start or pick any fights.

                          Turds or Gems it is such a subjective choice. Unfortunately I don't like Spin Doctors "Most" unturdlike car. To me it IS a definative turd car (based on styling only.)

                          Those particular Corvettes and Novas and the AMX are ALSO turd cars in my subjective view based on the styling only.

                          The Mustang and the Ford race car that Evan and Zuesdawg posted and are not turd cars.

                            Can someone say "Bugati" ? (in reference to the "nothing" )

                            No seriously, i think the original was a real super car. The old corvettes don't fall into super car category. I'm not impressed by the new ones though - for the money i'd rather a Z06. Where the Z06 didn't beat it, it came *very* close. Besides the i've heard horror stories about the new ones with leaky crankshafts due to an improper surface finish that Ford replaced with a speedi-sleeve, and cracked upper control arms since Ford tried some new squish casting techinque.

                            I mean i guess i would take one if someone gave it to me but...
                            They are cool cars but for my money i think i'd rather a Z06 over the new ones.
