God this is such a toss up.
FD RX7 is the obvious choice for me, but for something obscurely beautiful its the Gumpert Apollo

Regardless of incorrect opinions, I want to hear what you guys think is the most beautiful sheet metal ever.

Putting my money where my mouth is and bringing this home next week.

This is essentially a crummy Ford that will collect dust in my garage. We all know Iíll drive it for about a day, keep it maybe 7 years or so, then sell it.

You know it does!



No Merc engine in this one. It started life as a Ford V8, then Jag/Land Rover got their hands on it, then Aston revised it once again. Sounds frightening but itís turned out to be a damn good engine and makes one hell of a noise. Not that fast or powerful but the sound alone makes driving the car an event.

Jess wants to go to Colorado Denver area again and do some mountains hiking which is a lot easier with a car...and I could experience the joys of a non turbo high compression engine at high altitude! You thought it was slow before....just wait.

NOT GREAT! Turns out I am not in good shape to be doing secret agent man stuff.

The car is fantastic though. Slow as heck in a straight line but in the corners, itís a helluva car. I recently took it on a mountain cruise and I have to say, itís certainly an experience to be rowing gears in a 6 speed Aston with that V8 soundtrack. Straight line performance really isnít as bad as I say it is but you just donít get any drama from it. Itís a very smooth engine and all the power comes on above 5,000 rpm so itís not power you use around town. When you do use it, the power curve is is very linear so you never really feel it. You certainly hear it though!

I expected endless James Bond remarks with this car. So far I have gotten none. I have, however, gotten multiple remarks about my ďBatmobile.Ē

I have requested ďDAT ASTĒ for a license plate. Letís see if it gets approved.
