The Accord coupe rear-end reminds me of a Mercedes...looks good to me.

And for the Mazda 6...well. I like it

I should get a better shot from the side.

Hmm...
Domestic:
Ford GT40
Ford Mustang (don't like the new one)
Corvette
4th gen F-Bodies
Viper
SSR

Imports:
350Z/G35
Murano/FX (an SUV, but I still like it)
Mazda 6
RX-8
Maxima
Celica
Tiburon (sorry, but I like it)

I think there's great looking cars on both sides.

Are Lambos, Ferraris, Audis, Mercedes and BMW also considered "imports"? I mean, yeah, I know they ARE imports but if someone mentions imports, I mostly think about Japanese cars.

If by "Awesome" you mean "Piece of Sh!t" then yes, I agree, it's "Awesome".

I can think of a lot better ways to spend US$30K on vehicle, too.

That's with the HEMI though. You can pick up a 300 for around 22k. I guess its a matter of opinion. GUNIT seems to like it.

Anybody that thinks the EVO and STI actually look good shouldn't be allowed to post in this thread :).


The other cars are subjective but nobody can think those two look good.

I agree that what you listed is good. Overall in fact I may even think that imports look better, but the TOP DOGS I think are domestics. I really have not seen another car on the road that looks as good in person as a crossfire. A guy on my street has a black one and it's better than any 350z or anything like it. And no import car says badass like the dodge magnum imo :)
