History is one of the best and most important teachers out there. The fact that we can learn so much from past experience is astounding. Especially the fact that the experience does not need to be ours, we can learn from other people’s experiences. That is the reason why humankind got so far as it did, because of the ability to learn. Human babies are much less capable of living than younglings of other animals.
This is exactly because our brains are built to learn from experience and not instincts. There are many things that get lost to time, but they should not be, like classic cars. Car designers will go out of their way to make some crazy cars for what? A car that ‘’breathes’’ is useful for what exactly? There are many classic cars out there that are peak design and aesthetic. Here are some of these classic cars that might interest you.
The list can not be full
This must be stated at the beginning that the range of classic cars is massive. There are so many classic cars out there, and some of them you just can not find. In order to have a certain car, you need to restore it and find out more about the types of restoration. That is a whole other part of the fun with classic cars, not buying them, but restoring them. With this in mind, think about all the other possibilities you can find out there.
In order to truly appreciate this beauty and other cars on this list, think about them this way. Back in the 20th century, most of the design was done by hand, manually. The aerodynamic design which is at a mathematical level perfect was not done with the help of computers. In order to make such a machine, one had to be an engineer and an artist. Let’s not even talk about the experiments that people had to take to see if the design is actually good.
Today’s designers can save a lot of time with the help of simple computer simulations. This is not meant to belittle today’s car designers, there are some massive geniuses out there. This is just to show what people can achieve with only their bare hands and brains. The perfect representation of such skills is this beautiful car that will always be a classic.
Toyota Supra MK III
Japanese cars are a staple when it comes to classic cars, no doubt about it. There can be a whole list of just classic Japanese cars and it would be so beautiful. In these types of car lists, one usually lacks and gets forgotten about for no good reason. The Toyota Supra MK III is a car with a really interesting design, accenting the shape of the car.
The shape of this car just screams 80s aesthetic, and every true fan of that era will notice it. Not only is the design really unique and beautiful, but the engine is also superb. You can find many of these MK III cars still in really good condition and ready to hit the road. These cars are pretty undervalued, which is a good thing for people with taste. This way, you can find a Toyota Supra MK III at a pretty reasonable price range.
This car swept both Europe and the USA in 1977 when it won the award for the best car in Europe. This beauty could be the very reason why Porsche got to the place where it is today. Without such a simple yet beautiful design, Porsche would have to wait to get its fame again. The engine capability was also the best for that period of time due to water cooling. In those times, this was novel technology, and everyone wanted a piece of that cake.
It is very important for all of us not to forget the past and how things used to be. Only from such experiences can we truly move forward and make some sort of advancement. Imagine if we had to discover fire every time we had to cook food. It would be truly unpleasant, but of course, no one discovers fire again.
There are many things left in the past that we should not let get lost in that dark place. Classic cars are one of these things that should be immortalized. We can learn so much from these designs, both in the engineering aspect and aesthetic aspect. Even if we leave the aspect of learning, these cars are just true eye candy. It is very important to admire some true art and let your mind and feelings wander about.
