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.

Locker Space

Fly as Hell


  • Chevrolet Camaro'67
  • Dodge Charger '68
  • DeLorean DMC-12
  • Nissan 300ZX
  • Ferrari 575M Superamerica


  • Ford Mustang'64*


  • Porsche 959* - For the same reason the Nissan GTR is square, the Porsche 959 was square. The technical shiz-waz that made this car fast couldn't be easily explained, and the swollen-lip styling made this Porsche fall behind the pack. Bill Gates; need I say more? Square.

New Kid on the Block

The Lotus Esprit soared high enough to be cast upon the silver screen as a bond car and just so happened to be bought by a real-life James Bond villain, but don't let the sky fall on your head with those romantic notions of spies who loved you. Many cars were elevated by the fame of her majesty's secret service, yet few came back to only live twice and die another day. Goldfinger.
