@farmerman,
We had a Morgan plus 4 in the family for a few years. My mom, a chubby Mennonite lady, absolutely loved driving it around town. I wasn't allowed to drive it due to earlier auto mishaps. My brothers and I have owned quite a few Brit sports cars and I retain a strong affinity for the breed (though I'd have to be waterboarded before buying/working on another).

Still, yes, I think that is a beautiful automobile. And I accept your aesthetic challenge. What do you consider an example of beauty in automotive design, farmerbub?

@blatham,
I once saw an italian car exhibit with a lot of cars I liked from the early days - but I forget the names, even the precise looks I liked.

Here's a pretty thing (to me) -

@ossobuco,
I have a photo of my father and another fellow leaning on the other fellow's Cord (Roadster?) - hmm, hey Dys, can I use your scanner one of these days? I wouldn't mind identifying it further..

@ossobuco,

By chance or tasteful intuition, you've pointed to the nameplate which, in my view, includes the most beautiful cars ever designed (by both father and son).

Three examples:
