CAR Magazine is 50 years old and they’ve just done a special photo shoot featuring their best 50 cars of the last 50 years – including the Saab 99 Turbo.
My guess is that they’ve used Chris’ 99T for this photo shoot, the same black 99 Turbo that Jeremy Clarkson and James May fell in love with on Top Gear.
Fourth row, fifth from the left.
Also, please note that our American, French, German and English poll winners are nearly all present. The only one missing is the VW Beetle (how the Smart got in there when the Beetle couldn’t is beyond me).
In fact, I think the top two in each of our polls have made the grade (minus the Beetle). They would be:
- America – Ford Mustang, Chevy Corvette
- France – Citroen DS, Citroen 2CV
- Britain – Jaguar E Type, Mini
- Germany – Beetle (missing), Porsche 911
It seems we’re doing pretty well with our assessments.
