As a European, I dislike all the old US "classics". The finish is nice...but I just think the car is ugly.
Still ugly, too aggressive, too blocky. YMMV.
The DB5, DeTomaso Vallelunga, AC Cobra, Jaguar S were all nicer looking imo. Different tastes and all that. The best looking car of the period for me would probably be the Porsche 906.
Bred in America for the American way of driving. If I were in America, it'd make sense, big open roads, few sharp bends. Here, it'd be horrid since when I do have to drive, it's mainly on tight, twisty back roads or city centres with lots of roundabouts and curves. The Corvette is the only through-bred American car I wouldn't mind giving a spin over here, don't know about owning one, but they look fun to drive. The aesthetics of the old USA cruisers, we can simply disagree on.
