    Ok I think the new F1 cars look like they were beat with a ugly stick. Post a picture of what you thank is the best looking F1 car.
    You can have more than one favorite....

    Here is one of mine. 1965 Ferrari 312

    Gone too soon. He was the best in his era, but sadly we didn't get to see him fullfill his full potential. Imagine all the great battles he would have had with Schumacher.

    Anything per 70s, they had so much character compared to what is out there now, and they were all competitive.

    "Jumper" Jarier was the one I was thinking of. And wasn't Tom Price driving one when he was killed in South Africa?

    ^^^ Yes. He struck a track worker running across the track with a fire extinguisher, responding to his teammate (in the 17 Shadow) whose car was pulled to the side near the rail and beginning to catch fire. The extinguisher struck Pryce in the head, killing him. The worker was killed as well...
