This is The Opposite Locker where we try and sort out the cool from the square. This is a discussion system detailing how cool a car is, not how fast, fun, or frivolous it may be, but how well it looks in the cat's pajamas. But, you may be asking, what makes a car cool anyways?


Please utilize the Anna Kendrick Test when discussing why a particular car is cool or uncool.


Asterisked* cars are moved more than slightly from the original vote by use of veto power, and double asterisked** cars are vehicles moved back under a challenge.

New Kid On The Block

Cadillac has pressed onward in their war with the Germans, sometimes opting for plastic chrome in place of actual luxury.
