Classic cars have a big fan base in UK and Ireland as they basically offer a great alternative to all those common modern day motors which populate the roads, and to many they also hold a prestigious & nostalgic value. Below are some of the best classic cars:
1966 Shelby-427 Cobra
Any car that’s attached to Carroll-Shelby’s name is instantly worth your time. This car has an insane power to weight ratio, and it is a bit more-giddyup than the Corolla. In addition, the hundreds of thousands-of dollars you would pay for 1 will seem like champ change in comparison to the $ 5.5-million shelled out for ’66 Shelby 427-Cobra Super Snake
1961 Jaguar EType
Doesn’t matter how you pronounce it Jag-u-ar or Jagwar, everyone will agree that this brand oozes uber style. The EType was released back in the year 1961 and was followed by a heavy praise. Enzo Ferrari even referred to this car as, “The most-beautiful car to be ever made.”
1969 Maserati-Ghibli 4.7
The aggressive shark shaped nose on Maserati Ghibli makes it enough for this car to firmly be on this list. In addition, the name Maserati earns it plenty-of clout. We can say, this car’s what Mazda Miata dreams-of becoming when it goes to sleep at night.
It was pretty clear that the list would certainly have to include at least 1 Mustang and 1 Camaro. It is a great old school classic muscle car. The white stripes that are on a blue-Z28 strikes you as quintessentially cool.
1964 Aston Martin-DB5
If it is cool and classic enough for James Bond, it is cool enough for anyone. If you were to pick 1 car which Bond relied on most, you would be hard pressed not to pick with the Aston martin-DB5, and the 1 from Goldfinger movie would certainly look pretty neat in your garage.
1957 Mercedes-300SL Gullwing
The car’s doors are just a part of the main reason why this is 1 of the coolest classic cars to be ever manufactured. The fact that 300SL was one of the fastest production-car at the time, basically means driving to any of your meetings would not be a bore.
1969 Boss 429-Mustang
You know you are getting some real great power when they’ve to change the mustang’s body just to accommodate a freakishly huge engine. You will want to roll-down your windows just to listen to the engine while you are cruising around.
1963 Corvette Sting-Ray
Although nothing was actually wrong with Corvette prior to the ’63, when Sting Ray rolled-out it made all the previous car models look much like chopped livers (fast and still kinda attractive chopped livers). Besides a new-look, the C2-Corvette was much lighter and it handled far much better than the predecessors.
This Jaguar EType’s Asian-doppelgänger has that same beautiful look with perhaps a bit more brains-underneath. The thoughts that went into this car basically became the hallmark-of Japanese sports vehicles.
1969 Ferrari Dino-246 GT
Far much too often vehicles are rigid. The angles and the lines are harsh & unless there is something crazier under the boot, they tend to become a clone of another. The soft lines that are on Ferrari Dino 246-GT tells you that this vehicle is meant to-be driven fast.
1966 Alfa Romeo Spider-Duetto
There is something about this vehicle that makes you just want to drive around the Italian countryside, occasionally stopping to sample the local foods. In addition, any time you get a vehicle with style & storage space, you know you have hit the jackpot. It is perfect for storing the sheets-of paper with mobile/telephone numbers on them.
If there is 1 thing we are sure about the 1969 Charger, is that it is aerodynamic. Well, at least that is what we’ve all learned from Bo & Luke Duke. The 1969 Charger is basically a thing of great beauty. It may not get the billing its’ Mustang counter-parts always get, but the fast back look & style will probably never go out-of fashion.
1962 Ferrari 250-GTE
The Ferrari 250-GTE was basically the sports vehicle for a family man. As Road and Track once said, “It’s not only a grand car, but a glorious touring-car.” It is one of the most desirable used cars in Belfast.
We do not know if it is the most stylish vehicle on this list, but as-far-as credit goes, it inspired the “Let has toss a couple-of seats on the rocket” sports-car idea. It became a new & different Italian sports vehicle option outside the Ferrari’s for all auto-enthusiasts at the time.
1969 Toyota 2000-GT
If you are noticing kind of a small James Bond-theme here, you are totally right. While James Bond-got a drop top, the 1969 Toyota 2000-GT was stylish-enough without 1 being offered from factory. The much elongated front, alongside the design, makes this car feel much a lot like an Italian-roadster rather than something you’d picture buying for its’ highly dependable gas mileage.
