Citroen DS
It was powder blue and i wept when my dad sold it to some enthusiast for $80 who approached us when he saw it on teh driveway.....if ever i come into money this is my dream car. You have to sit and wait for it to rise before you take off- fabulous and sublime and just beautiful and it seems that Classic & Sports Car magazine agree with me too.

Car designers name Citroen DS "most beautiful car". Ever.

The DS is neat and full of character but to call it the most beautiful car ever is just plain weird.

Smart car cause it isn't very smart. It's tiny but without the fuel economy to match it's size.
The curent VW bug is still a chick looking car with no performance since there's no turbo model.
With the Chevy Volt, why pay $40 to 50 thousand for a Chevy cruze?
Where is the puke emoticon?

My high school friend had a lime green Rambler station wagon that all of us thought was great. Plenty of room, and we didn't worry about messing up the interior, someone else did it before he got the car. It took us to the beach, the creek, our buddies houses, or anywhere else we wanted to go. Poor car only saw a wash job when it rained, and it never got vacuumed out as far as I know. I also have my doubts it ever saw an oil change, as well. But it always started, and had a decent radio, so what else do teenage boys need in a vehicle? Only problem was, we had to make sure when we parked that we were on an incline, or that we had a long enough runway to get up to speed before popping the clutch. It was usually 3 or more of us, so we always had 2 to push, and 1 to man the helm. We would leave the back window down so we could jump in as it took off. Couldn't risk slowing down. Either non of us knew how, or probably just didn't care to try to fix the starter, or whatever it was that kept it from starting with a key like a normal car would. Never worried about someone stealing it, though. I guess at that age, adolescent boys were happy for anything that brought attention to themselves, even if it was diving through the tailgate of a slow moving vehicle in plain sight of your classmates. When you're young, there is no shame in much of anything, I guess.
