I'm looking for a new project to do after I finish my current build and I thought this may stir up some interesting subjects that aren't always on the tip of the tongue or ones that may not be all that popular on the hobby sites. 

 

I was born in '84, which isn't the best for car aesthetics, but I've always liked the Jaguar XJS, Ferrari 400i, Lancia Beta, Aston Martin V8 Vantage and Volvo 242..

Born in 1970, lots of interesting cars from that year.  Dodge Challenger, Mustang, and the big Ford and Mercury coupes (XL and Marauder) being among my favorites.

Born 1979. I like the styling of the 77-79 Chevrolet Caprice/Impala Coupe a lot. Rear glass is cool on these.

Born in 54, the only thing I can think of is a VW bug or a Chevy pick-up.

Good, I'm not the only "geezer" around here. 51 for me and I guess the Ford Crestliner.  Was that a 51 ?

I was going to say a BMW e21, but i'll go with a Chevrolet truck.
