Always thought the Reliant Scimatar was agood looking car. Sporty estate and goes like stink. Also what about the much under rated Jensen & Healey GT with the Vauxhall built and forgotten to be tested befor use Lotus engine. A couple of motors I've always fancied but never gotten around to owning (yet). One car I have always liked and thought quite pretty was the Xsara VTR or VTS. Had one in Helios gold with all the bits on. It wasn't particulary fast but just looked pretty on the move and on the drive. The wife made me sell it so we (she) could decorate the new super house more rooms with no furniture. But hey ho now running a ZX TD still going strong.

James, I rate the Stag as a looker too, that and the V8. Yes, I know that they should have stuffed the old Rover/Buick 3528cc under the hood and saved millions (probably in warranty cliams alone come to think of it!) but those old Stags look good and make a lovely noise.
Last summer we were on holiday in Cornwall and there were various touristy type leaflets in our house, one was for "Cornwall Classic hire" or somesuch with a picture of a Stag, me and my old fella wasted no time and got down there and hired the said Stag for the day, we both drove around S. Cornwall and kept flooring it, with silly grins on our faces. Till we filled up again anyway.
