Here’s one to start you. 1957 Mercedes 190SL. The smaller brother of the famous Gullwing Mercedes. Once left to rot in fields, now sought after by collectors all over the world. Was lucky enough to be in a team rebuilding one a few years ago, never realised how special it was at the time, just thought meh it’s not a gullwing. Oh to be young and ignorant again!

The DB5 was popularized in Goldfinger but actually appeared in six Bond films, including Thunderball, GoldenEye, and Tomorrow Never Dies. A die-cast model of the car was sold in 1965 and quickly became a holiday hit for children. In its first year of production, 2.5 million full-size models were sold.

Fast-forward to 2018 and you can now park the real DB5 in your garage. But before you do, be aware that it’ll cost you a whopping 2.75 million pounds (about $3.5 million). It also won’t be available for delivery until 2020.

I rebuilt a DB5 in 2012! Still have the original Aston Martin workshop manual for it! Poorly built British crap but pretty as heck.

I really really wanted a Spitfire when i was in my twenties, and found one sitting in a barn that needed quite some TLC. Unfortunately i didn't have the money and i had to walk away.

How can we not talk about SLS63 in most pretty faces in the car world?

My two favorites, the Ford GT 40 and the Nissan Skyline (aka The GTR)

I think the Boat Tail Riviera was one of the most snazziest looking cars ever made.
