The COOL cars

While my own experience with cars is limited to home to school/store to home, I have spent time recently with my grandson, the car thief.  While his vocabulary is that of a two-year old (which he is), he has clear vision on the types of cars.  There are three:  little cars, big cars, and cool cars.  He is quite serious when he says "COOL cars."

It makes perfect sense, this division of cars.
Here are some “cool cars”.

I tried to remember what this is....

Now, given that these are “cool cars”, there are many cars that used to be the "Kings of Cool Fast Cars".  Sadly, they have broadened their line.
Maserati Kubang SUV
Not your father's Mazerati
2014 Porsche Cayenne Diesel 4dr SUV Badge

Large Accommodating Doors
The Lincoln SUV that soccer moms love
Jaguar's new roar
 Ferrari SUV Rendered Yet Again
Zoooooom! Ferrari!
The Dukes of Hazard and Magnum P.I. must weep at the devolution of the cool fast cars.

P.S.  The Mustang is still the Mustang.  You can see them at this site.


  1. I'd like to have a Chevy Belair myself.

  2. A Ferrari SUV? That's... odd.
    I still want a Bugatti. Hope they never made an SUV.

    1. I did not check that one out...wonder what their site would show...

    1. They are a bit expensive, but it would be interesting to read reviews.

  4. We have a '57 Chevy Belair hardtop. Granted, it's a 4 door, but we love it. It's waaaaaay cool!

  5. A ferrari SUV, that might be neat to give a go

  6. That fascination starts early doesn't it?

    1. With my grandson, it was immediate! He loves anything with wheels, from the time he could walk. My son was the same, even though the dolls and tea sets were mingled with his cars and weapons of destruction.

  7. If I had my pick I would like a 66 corvair like I used to drive in high school :)

    1. I would like a '56 Ford truck. Fond memories from the farm.

    2. I like the pre-60's classics. My dream would be a circa 1950 Hudson. My wife would hate it I'm sure.

  8. Your grandson has great taste! I love looking at cars. Whenever I bring my car in for service or a wash, I always walk around looking at the latest models. In a few years, our cars will be driving us around.


  9. Those are really great cars! That being said, it sounds weird that Ferrari could have an SUV. It already has a reputation for fast cars and such, and having an SUV in the lineup might seem out of place. But if it has the same performance as those hot race cars, then I think they can get away with it. What do you think?

  10. An SUV for the Ferrari? That sounds really interesting! But I agree with Diana. It seems a little awkward, not only to the product image itself, but with the target end-user as well. I think it would be great if they could make a subsidiary, if the company has a plan of targeting another demographic.

  11. You are right, those are some 'cool cars'! The Lincoln SUV exudes a really manly image. I guess that’s why moms love it. Haha! And an SUV for the Ferrari? That definitely is a huge leap from their usual style. Anyway, thanks for sharing this post with us, Susan. Have a great day!
