I have been following the evolution of the Stile Bertone Mantide. It is part Corvette ZR1 and all Italian style. It was designed by Jason Castriota who is known for designing the Pininfarina Ferrari P4/5, a dreadful looking car. But where he failed on the P4/5, he succeeded on the Mantide. This car is beautiful. The elegant flying buttresses combine with its angular lines to create a perfect balance of beauty and beast. It is lighter, faster, and more aerodynamic than the ZR1. In fact it's prototype was entirely designed in a wind tunnel for optimal performance. Well thats enough praise, just take a look for your self.

I am struggling with something very important at the moment. In my current state of unemployment I have lots of time to day dream. The latest reoccurring day dream that I have been having is what car I should buy when I get a job. I want the challenge of restoring an old classic with a lot of style, but I also what a car with excellent performance. I wanna go FAST and look good while I fly by.
I have researched and narrowed my options to a semi firm list of four cars. Below are my dream cars, but which will it be? What do you think?
1989 BMW E30 M3
1972 Nissan Skyline Ht 2000 Gtr
1978 Datsun 260Z
1971 Datsun 510
