The 15 Most Beautiful American Cars of All Time—Or Not


So we were sitting around surfing the Net—er, um, doing some completely legit work-related Internet research—when we noticed the guys at MSN had compiled a list of the most-beautiful American cars of all time. So after we finished reading about Kim Kardashian’s “lavish” wedding dress and America’s top wine country destinations, we scrolled back to check out MSN’s list.

If you haven’t figured it out, we’re suckers for Top 10 lists. So a Top 15 list? Well, we just couldn’t resist sharing that!

Check out the MSN Autos 15 Most Beautiful American Cars of All-Time below, see their reasons for each pick, and then tell us what would make your list in the comments section below.
