Bit of a tough question to explain here. Take the year that had the cars with the most class/style/prestige/whatever else. It’s either:

-Find the classiest car and choose the year that it’s in: if you want simplicity, go for this one. So, you could choose the Aston Martin DB5, and your year would default to between 1963-1965. If you chose the Duesenberg Model J, your years would be 1928-1937.

-Choose each year and find the high-end cars of that time. Quantity and quality matters here. For instance, you could choose Year A because it includes Super-Classy car A, Super-Classy car B, and Super-Classy car C.

-Make a top # list of the classiest cars ever made, and find the year/general era that most of the cars are from. For instance, your list could be ranked 1928, 1937, 1965, 1933, 2012, 1934, 1926, 1925, 1963, 1985, 2005, Then, your era would be late 20s-early 30s.

Keep in mind that expensive =/= class. Take the Veneno Roadster, for example. It’s $3.4 million, but would get a few nasty stares if someone took it to the Secret Garden Party. But a ‘72 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow would come right in.

Class: n. Showing stylish excellence

I’m expecting the answers to be from the rather large era from 1925-1942, and 1946-1973.

Please excuse this rather long and pointless topic, I’ve got nothing to do other than an AP US history packet, which I will probably do some serious procrastination on.
