    Cars (on average) will always share similarities, that was a big attribute in the '50s as well as now and as well as before WWII.<!-- Signature -->

    well considering the fact that the past 20 or so years is only a small sliver of the great length of time that automobiles have been around, it might be safe to say that they're trying to make it even with cars to dates (maybe not, i wouldnt know) but there's sooooo countless many great cars before the 1980s that it makes sense to me. besides, its about time they put so many bugattis on the site!<!-- Signature -->

    I just do agree with you , sc.net still lacks many classic cars:

    many Porsches , like the 917
    Many French cars in general (Bugattis , Alpines , Facel Vegas...)
    Some Alfas
    Some vintage race cars...

    Hey if you don't like these then search the data base for new ones. But this is what is on the main page so if you like it post if you don't like it post if you have a problem with the way the site is run then go away and quit crying about it because you suck and your favorite car is probly a McLaren or Lambo or a Supra and your signature is probly some line from the Fast and the Furious. AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I hate these noobs!!!!!!!!<!-- Signature -->

    ...you wouldn't have them without these classic examples. The site puts them there to show not only the progression and improvement of automotive technology, but the subtle and timeless styling trends that still remain catchy and awe-inspiring today.

    You can't honestly say you wouldn't give this car a second glance if you passed by one on the way to the 7-Eleven.

    Is that too logical for you?<!-- Signature -->

    B/c there are enough new cars on this sight and there are far more old car models than new car models.<!-- Signature -->
