What a handsome figure of a dragon. No wonder I fall madly in love with the Alani Dragon now, the avatar, it's a gorgeous dragon picture.

Nice.Big smile It's a pity the Big Three didn't stick with the coke bottle designs instead of switching to boring Euro-box styling

Same could be said for the Europeans, who also used to make great looking cars.

Ford and Vauxhall, perhaps (see photo above), but a lot of British classic cars (excluding sports cars like Jaguar) look heavy and old fashioned

My first car when I got back from Korea was a white '57 Chevy.  It was already "nosed and decked", and my buddies and I put in a Hurst speed shifter and cruised on Saturday nights.

I drove this car two weeks ago at a wedding I attended. A local auto dealer magante was at the wedding and at my table.

My oh my, 1002 HP, 970 oddpounds of torque, two V8's mated midline. 0-60 in under 3 seconds. An experience of a lifetime, probably never get near another one again.

This new Bentley has similar styling to the Chrysler 300. Why can't the designers come up with cool-looking cars for ordinary people, as they did with the Ford Capri, Cortina and Escort?
