Most Beautiful Race Car Of All Time?

David Malsher at http://www.racer.com/ recently asked his readers their own personal opinion of “the most beautiful race cars of all time”. The question is not limited to his own audience, so how about we join in, too? He requested that only 5 are picked at most, and the best replies will appear in an upcoming February follow up story with the chance at some prizes. The trick is that he asks that you try and be objective with your decisions and not choose only cars that have a winning competitive history that may have influenced your own personal reasons for picking them. Normally we are told not to judge a book by it’s cover, but in this case that is exactly what we are being asked to do here.

Readers on http://jalopnik.com/ were quick to jump in with their own votes cast, some of which we have included below in no particular order. There were some interesting choices, some we agreed upon and others, not so much. In any case, we always like an excuse to look at race cars. We especially like that the Ricky Bobby’s  NASCAR from “Talladega Nights” was suggested, although we are guessing that it probably sadly won’t make this competition’s winning circle. Shake and bake!…
