12 Cars that our grandpas would have lusted after as a teen.( If only, i was alive during the 30's and 40's, oh wait, no i'm good)

First of all don’t ask me why 12, why not round it up to 15 or 10 or 20. Why don’t you shut your face?Huh? Because this is how it is. Here we go.

1.      1Jaguar XK120(1949)
Usually they save the best for the last but this car is the first one to pop into my head. The Jaguar XK 120, must have gotten your Granpappy’s mojo going and if he was ever lucky to own one (In India, r u kidding me?), all the Ladki's be screaming. I guess. Anyhoo…

I think this is the Sexiest Car on this entire list. True story. To petrosexuals, this is Marilyn Monroe, naked, eating a strawberry.

Apparently, this car was conceived as an accident as just after WW2 Jag had decided to stop making high performance sports cars. But just before the London motor show of 1948, as quoted by the late Sir William Lyons, “it was done more quickly than anything before or since, and I could compare weeks, almost days with Years.” 
Not only did it look great, it packed in a legendary Six-cylinder, twin-cam engine that established the Jaguar Marque as indisputable champions in many races and records.

2.Bristol 400/401
When an Aircraft Company sets out to make a car, it has to be fantastic; the six-cylinders Bristol’s were just that. Also expensive, apparently. Based on Ze German pre-war BMW’s
after the war, the directors decided to embark into Car manufacturing. And as Borat would put it wowowewa.
With high speed handling that was marvelous even in today's standards, this car was unbelievably Aerodynamic.

Can't wait to get to the next ones already. here is a link to the Wiki article on the Company if you are interested http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bristol_Cars

3. BMW 328
     The Car that set the standards for high performance Sports cars in the pre-war era. This car was developed as an Ideal for Hitler's Autobahn's where the German drivers would be able to maintain a cruising speed of 100 kph for long distances. Its development predecessor the 303 was was the first one with the trademark divided front grille. Ze Germans called it 'Nieren' meaning Kidney's, which the shape was thought to resemble. These Germans are hilarious. Lol.(wtf?)

                     The one above is a  BMW 328 Touring spider version. I want to do unspeakable things to it.

4.Porsche 356 Coupe
 Ze Germans are back. For those(including myself for quite sometime) who thought that Porsche styling wasn't much, in your face. This baby based on the VW Beetle, designed by Ferdinand Porsche and Commissioned by the Fuhrer himself was like this extremely voluptuous cute girl who would wrestle you the ground. What i meant to say is that it could dupe you..choke slam..pinned to the ground..... 
For the lack of a good metaphor, it was a beautiful but pretty rugged car.Fullstop.

                                                              habba habba howwwwwlll

5.Mercedes 540K
    If your Grandfather was an extremely Rich, boring old business man(or an Opium Smuggler or from some royal Family), who thought he was better than everybody else, chances are, he owned this Merc. It was one of the Largest Cars of its time. I hate Mercs actually, I think they are Cold, boring (except for their Hyper and super cars) but this one grabs me by the balls and punches me in the face with its Awesomeness.

                                        Hey Merc, Y U NO make Cars like these no more, huh? Y?

6. Saoutchik Hispano-Suiza H6C

 Hey XK, you think that you are the Hottest one in the room? * and the XK goes Green with Envy* 

                                umm.. yeah, I think this is the Sexiest Car on the list.I mean look at it. 

7.Delage D8 Roadster
            Louis Delage, the man who created knew what he was doing by creating one of the most beautiful low slung exotic cars, with their incredibly fast V8's. And look even their Mascot agrees. Bitch is goin crazy.

                                                Voitures françaises sont impressionnants, non?

8. Bugatti Royale (Type 41)

This is it bro, this is as cool as it gets. This is the Shit. And no one says it better than Wiki.
Its so huge, you can Park a Fucking Mini on its Bonnet. 

The Bugatti Type 41, better known as the Royale, was a large luxury car with a 4.3 m (169.3 in) wheelbase and 6.4 m (21 ft) overall length. It weighed approximately 3175 kg (7000 lb) and used a 12.7 L (12763 cc/778 in³) straight-8 engine. For comparison, against the modern Rolls-Royce Phantom, the Royale is about 20% longer, and more than 25% heavier.
Ettore Bugatti planned to build twenty-five of these cars, and sell them to royalty. But even European royalty was not buying such things during the Great Depression, and Bugatti was able to sell only three of the six made. Today a Bugatti Royale is both one of the largest and rarest cars in the world.
( you heard that, even the ROYALTY had to think twice before buying these cars.)

                  Had to go out of the Page. Its, that awesome.Rajnikant has a thousand of these.True story.

Ettore Bugatti:  "So, I hear the Rolls Royce has a Flying spur? This fucking elephant on my bonnet will trample her."    True story.

9.Delahaye Roadster

           Was that a brush stroke? Holy fuck, no its a car. Who can break these standards?

                                    Figoni, a coach builder makes these exotic bodywork. True story.

10.Duesenberg Model J
          Probably the mustangs and shelby's looked upto Model J when they were in their Kindergarten. Oh yeah. its big, bold and powerful. everything I love about american cars.(also hate sometimes.)

Look at those Exhausts! 
                       You mess with me, you mess with my grandpa. And he drives a Duesenberg.Bitch.

11.Cord 810/812 Phaeton

 I wonder what mind blowing awesome cars this company would be churning out were it alive today.The people who were designing this were hipsters actually. For them, the radiator grill and the lights were becoming too mainstream. They decided, fuck it, we shall have tiny slits and the lights can pop out only when they are needed. Little did they know that the technology of those times wouldn't support it. The result was extremely hot looking cars whose engines used to heat up pretty fast and the lights stopped popping out altogether after a while. Lol. Fancy Driving in the dark now eh? Hipsters.Tsk tsk. Nevertheless i would kill to own one of these, so would my grandpa.

                                                     I look more futuristic than your mom.

12. Cord Phantom Corsair
          Like i Said, i can only wonder what cars these people would be churning out had they been alive today. This car looks more  futuristic than the concepts we have today.
I go bat-shit crazy every time looking at this car. It would put some of the bat-mobiles to shame. 
Apparently the Visibility is bad. well boo fucking hoo. Batman has loads of other gadgets to make up for it.

         It came out in 1938.True story.Unless someone in the future figured out how to use the time machine.

That's for now. And if you disagree with me, don't bitch, send me links of which cars you think should be Included in the list on the comments below.The list can grow. Have a nice day!
