    The Yellow Teapot looks so good in that front 3/4 shot!

    The 70s seems to have been an era of odd-looking cars, as teams were getting to grips with aerodynamics. I don’t think the majority of the cars pictured above can be called beautiful, but they are certainly very striking, and interesting cars.

      yeah and just look at the advertising those beautiful fonts, especially by the side of the Ferraris “Gilles Villeneave” “Niki Lauda” “Jody Scheckter”

    Ah the 70′s, so much variety and innovation, pity we can’t have that now due to the prohibitive cost, off course there was so much money available in the seventies that Britons only needed to work 3 days a week.

    Golden era, simply magical.

    Was the Wolf designed in partnership with Frank Williams?
