Thought I would resurrect this thread for the new forum.

Lets start with the new Ferrari F12 Berlinetta that was unveiled today.

Well we can't be doing without car porn, can we. :D

And many thanks for resurrecting it. Just a couple of issues though:

1. The original had the title 'Car Porn' - just the two words, I believe punctuated with at least one exclamation mark. Now, whilst I cannot condone the reckless use of any more than a single punctuation point and would myself employ none, it would be at the discretion of the thread starter whether or not to use one at all. As for the syntax, concise use of the two principal terms is not only sufficient but packs the bigger punch, the term 'thread' proving thoroughly redundant. Lastly, and while capitalisation it not a requisite feature for titles (save for the first word and proper nouns), observing both a capital C and a capital P would be quite appropriate given the content of the thread, although I must admit the original may well have left 'porn' uncapitalised - I just can't recall. In any case (ahem), it would seem only proper that the resurrected thread stay some way faithful to the original, and to that end would I humbly advise setting the title as 'Car Porn', with or without a single exclamation mark.

Let's (as in 'let us not', hence the apostrophe, since I'm being so pedantic...) not! And here's why: The OP strikes a keynote, setting the tone for the rest of the thread. It would therefore seem mildly unethical that anyone would select for the very first post a photograph of marque that enjoys any affiliation with contemporary F1, and mildly baffling that such a poor example should be chosen to represent that marque (did you not see last week's episode of Top Gear?). I appreciate that you have gone with a recently released car and a strong F1 connection may well be what you had it mind, but for a thread which does not declare a partisan agenda... Actually, you know what, I think I can live with that: a recently released car with a strong F1 connection. Seems right, I suppose.

But for goodness sakes change that thread title! Pretty please? :)

My dad used to have one of those. He sold it to a guy across the street who blew the engine up within a week. Knowing my dad and how fastidious he is it could have only been the other guy's fault. In fact I vaguely remember my dad being very upset about something and having an argument with the guy.

Also, props for the Capri. Was being followed by a beaten up Mark II the other day. Looked really mean in the rear view mirror.

Actually, I had a '67 Impala coupe such as you depict. Mine was a light blue metallic and with too little engine, but OMG the room inside it. Lots of back seat room, which was just perfect for a young man without his own pad.

Dolo....

Great Choice! One of my favorites too. However, there are a few other that fall into my thoughts today...

The original Lamborghini Miura
Image

The mighty '62 Ferrrari 250 GTO
Image

Mid 60s Ferrari 250GTL "Lusso"
Image

Jaguar XKE roadster, but not the abomination known as the Series 2 version.
Image

And an "Oldie" but a very, very special "oldie"... the early 30s Duesenberg Model SJ Phaeton. No other car could match it at the time
Image


and lastly, my own first car, which I think is still one of the most beautiful of American designs, I never should have sold it... the 1963 Buick Riviera ...
Image

Now that is my list for today... all examples of "car porn".. However, my top 5-6 might change tomorrow, the one thing I do know, is that few if any of the current generation of cars make that kind of an impression on me.

OB1,

You beat me by one year, I got mine in '70, traded it off for a brand new Comet GT in '71. The 283 in the Chevy was just not enough engine for me with that size a car. It cried for the 396 or the 427. The one you linked to is a '63, I believe...and a 409 was the only way to go in that year, though one could live with the 327/348, whichever one it was that was available.
:D

Blake, mine was only 283, but got me 60 odd miles to work every day & was bullet proof.
I then got a 1965 Dodge Dart Gt with, I think, a 318 ci motor in it. I really liked that & it was bullet proof & if I remember put about 74000 miles on it in 2 years.
My 3rd & last car while living in the US was a 1967 Pontiac GTO. That had a 400 ci engine, but had a lot of work done & was giving 370 HP on a dyno. It was 4 in the floor, not auto..
