Original Classic Cars you must drive.
A world-class automobile is a combination of tangible and etherial attributes. From the sensuous fender-lines to the memories evoked by leather’s musky scent on a rainy day, these qualities work together to create one’s sense of the car. Wonderful automobiles don’t become revered based solely on their shapes or smells, however; the driving experience is the paramount feature, as it separates a car from a lesser, stationary piece of equipment. A great driving car is able to elevate itself above the sum of its parts, much as a jug-headed Fred Astaire became more handsome and sophisticated as soon as he started dancing.
Few dancers can claim even a speck of Astaire’s genius, though, and the same is true of automobiles. Out of the thousands upon thousands of makes, models and variants produced during the last hundred-plus years, only a fraction provide a truly transformative driving experience. We’re talking about cars that change the way you think about them once you get behind the wheel — and can even change the way you think about driving in general. In fact, we’d say there are 35 cars that every enthusiast must sample. We don’t care if you beg, borrow or steal your way behind the wheel, as each one is all worth the effort to take for even a brief spin.
These machines aren’t on our list due to their looks. It’s not about their values, either. It’s about only one thing: the experience from the most important seat in the house.
