As a kid in the early 1970s, Pintos and Vegas did nothing for me. Rather, race cars set the hook, often via the pages of R&T. Shots of Fittipaldi and Peterson drifting the black-and-gold JPS Lotus 72 with its anvil-shaped airbox made me love cars, particularly those forged in the fires of competition. This, naturally, explains my affinity for cars as varied as the curvaceous Ford GT40 Mk IV (that won Le Mans in 1967 with Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt at the wheel), the upright E30 BMW M3 (the raucous street-legal version of the early DTM star) and the SLS AMG, a gullwing Mercedes that makes me think of the 1953 Carrera Panamericana open road race and how much fun that must have been. That said, I'm also a sucker for quirky originality, hence my choice of the original teardrop-shaped urSaab. How can you not be charmed by that early aero-influenced Swede?
