Car Magazine

May's issue of Car magazine from England is listing the 100 coolest cars of all time. The Lotus Elan is listed at #75. It was their only entry. Would any one like to speculate why the Elise wasn't in there? Number one was the Mercedes-Benz gullwinged 300SL.

Evo did a "Coolest 100 ever" car comparison about a year ago and No. 1 went to the Lamborghini (sp) Miura. Wonder how it fared in the CAR comparison.

Unfortunately, I think that this is true more than we would like to admit in this day and age.
