No I didn’t.

And wrong.... the only cool van is an old VW camper.

Do I have to explain everything??
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
VDub vans are only cool to two groups,, those who have one and those who want one..
Those that have had one and realise how embarrassing they are know the truth

Its a bit like saying flip flops or sandals are cool and poo pooing crocs !
50% of what makes that Mustang cool is the sound. (y)
To be fair the shape is pretty cool too, but then an awful lot of 60's yank tin was..
Look at the Camaro, the Road Runner, the GTO, the Chevelle ( dispite its granny name ), the 'Cuda with its hemi limp, or even the Charger Magnum the bad guys were in in that chase.. all icons in their own right..
What did we get ?
Zodiac, Cresta,Rover P6...and all the other shite ( mind you, quite like the PA Cresta )

True. I had a chance, back in the early 80's, to buy a Mach 1 at a knockdown price and I've regretted it ever since. Love the shape ....

Even Steve McQueen (cool) wearing. black cocktail dress (cool) while reciting French 17th century poetry (cool)'would look stupid in Crocs. Not cool by any stretch of the imagination...they say 'I have given up'.

Wrong.

BMWs aren't cool - I have one.

nothing with a diesel in it is cool unless it is yellow and has JCB on the side.

Old VW campers are cool. Sub-zero if a Porsche flat four has been installed .

Out of all the possible cars you could have chosen, you choose one that looks good but handles like a pig on roller skates !
May I remind you of the state that car ended up in and indeed WHERE it ended up ?
I have never really fancied ditch diving my self !

It may handle like a pig but someone liked it....so much they paid the thick end of $4m for it

they paid $4 million for it because it was Steve McQueen's...... not cos its a Shelby fastback... Steve could have driven a 2CV in Bullet and it would fetch silly money... somehow the car chase wouldn't quite be the same I suspect though.
