Once we have decided, then I will then copy the image to this original post under the decided category. Please try to rate ALL cars. Make a list with your suggestion!






    ---- SUBZERO ----


    AC Cobra



    Lotus Carlton


    Land Rover 90



    Aston Martin DB7



    Jaguar E-type



    Ford Mustang

    Great Idea XTR

    If the Aston Martin get put on the uncool wall then this whole thing is a farce imho My vote for the DB7 would be in the SubZero section of the cool wall without a doubt. But then I do love AM and would be very bias towards any that get nominated for the cool wall.

    The AC Cobra would also get my vote for SubZero. The shape, the style, the sound of the engine, thats before you even get to feel the crazy power this car has.

    Citroen C2, UnCool I think would be the best choice of the 4 category's above, I can't comment on the Rally or VTR versions as I don't think I have ever seen then. It just seems that every little car that is being made at the moment is trying to look like a Ford Focus.


    Now I am guessing XTR posted 3 cars to get us rolling, and he does not want everyone posting 3 cars each time? I may be wrong. I'll just post the 1 this time.

    Audi RS6



    SubZero! What more could you want? It's one of the fastest saloon car in the world at the moment, with a massive 450bhp coming from a 4.2-litre 5-valve V8 with two turbochargers. This is my dream car. You would be wiping the smile of any M5 owners face

    DB7, Cool..
    Its cool cos its a DB and there almost still British

    AC Cobra, SubZero..
    Like you need to ask...


    SubZero cars should be cars that have stood out and made a difference...

    So, I give you for SubZero...

    The Lotus Carlton, Yes its a Vauxhall, Yes its a Carlton, yes the dashboard was crap but somehow you just cant see Cosworth doing a production version of the Granada with Twin Turbo's and rear wheel drive....
    http://www.itbyn.net/~kfi/lotus/lotus.rm



    Cool
    Mitzy Evo
    This car is the one all these wanna be rally driver types should be driving, the Evo has been for many years a better car than the Scooby, ok so they've ruined its looks >VI but hey it'll never be as common as a Scooby which is fine in my book...

    this will only work if only one person has the final say (as per JC) which is why the TG cool wall works... to a degree...

    and the Lotus Carlton is fast, brutal, and not at all cool - which woman would see you in it and say 'that looks like a cool car' - in my own wife's words: 'god-awful'

    An idea I thought of is that we could could have a weekly vote going for 3 cars each week, with the 4 voting options, and then at the end of the vote the car gets put up onto the car wall in whatever place in it won in the vote.

    That way we could use the voting thread to discuss the car's and keep thid one nice and clean with just the new cars being added each week.

    Just an idea.

    Right......my go PLEASE....please let me

    OK...on it....

    SERIOUSLY UNCOOL.....none of them..not even that pig of a Micra.....maybe the Citroen but not really.

    UNCOOL: Micra and Citroen and Mitsubishi Evo...sorry.....aroiund here they are driven by uncool people...either tear arses or old boys.

    COOL: Audi RS6 and Lotus Carlton and Cobra .......the Audi is virtually perfect in every way except that no oneknows why it would beat their car to death, and image, in Coolness, is way way important. The Lotus, while one of the fastest cars I've ever driven., and I 've seen a bit above the national speed limit in one, is pure hell on earth to drive quickly......like the Cobra.

    I cant vote for the Alfa in driving terms cos I never have but it LOOKS just stunning...so Cool

    But SUB ZERO.....DB7....and Landy.....

    these are two cars that SCREAM QUALITY...the shriek it with their entire history. A DB7 is sublime perfection from people who know more about carpet and wood than most interior designers and yet can be used to whisk you and your loved one and a toothbrush from Buckinghamshire to the Highlands of Scotland in sheer deliciious comfort and at mach 3

    and the Landy........

    one definition of a Landy to shame ALL other cars.....

    you could turn up to ANY dinner dance, any function, in a suit and top hat.....in a Landy......

    and you could do it in a DIRTY Landrover and only fools would look down their noses at you....the people who KNOW cars and ENGINEERING would say...."there goes a dude who knows his place in life....HE'S IN CHARGE of his life...." and you are ALWAYS in-charge in a Landy.....it will go ANYWHERE......no other car will get you through a deep ford, trough snow and then deposit you safe and sound at the party.....and as for road rage and car-jacking....yeah RIGHT......you'd have to hit that with 2 big Mercs to stop it.

    Landys are cool



    but you all missed one.....so SO SUB ZERO....that its is ABSOLUTE ZERO........ZERO KELVIN.

    Big blue

    I was gonna say Skyline. Not sure I like the spoiler and bonnet clips on that one though- trying too hard.

    Oh yeah- Mark 1 MR2. I own one, hence it's cool by association.
