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


Wayback Wednesdays are like the normal Opposite Locker, save for the advanced age of the cars on the block. For this series of posts, try and perceive the vehicle as if you were living in the time period of the car's release, and then base your vote upon its coolness, taking into consideration the evolution of culture.

  • Porsche 550
  • BMW M1 - This car was voted 'cool', but HammerheadFistpunch had the most interesting answer, "Im not even going to vote, there is no right answer here, some will say its frigid, and some will say square and they can both be right. I love the engine, I love the history and the idea...but Im not sold on it being a "cool" car. Interesting, you bet...but cool? Im not sure."


  • Chevrolet Camaro '67
  • Dodge Charger '68
  • DeLorean DMC-12
  • Nizzan 300ZX


  • Ford Mustang '64*

New Kid On The Block

The iconic 300SL from Mercedes-Benz showcased itself apart from it's competition, mainly through it's gull-wing doors; and thats basically all this car will be remembered for. The 300SL may have been a genuine supercar in relation to the median car of the day, but did the flashiness outpace it's appeal?
