    Default Wedge City [pics stolen from the meme site] exotic wedge cars

    There are about forty pics, one each of forty different marques of high end performance-luxury autos. I've never heard of most of these. The link below is where I found them, and there is no accompanying info about the cars themselves or the copyright info for the pics. I hope these are not too large, I don't know how to both steal it from the site and edit it, since it's in the site's public venue . Huh...?

    The first, Bizzarini Manta



    Ferrari 512 S Modulo



    Lamborghini Bravo

    I've always been fond of the TVR wedges:

    Slightly patchy build quality, but they were wonderful things. V8, fibreglass body, lots of noise, no driver aids of any sort.

    It's a look. And it's fun to see what various designers do with it.

    That last one looks like the Pontiac engineers found out homework was due 5 minutes before class and rushed something together to submit.

    I had an uncle (father's cousin) who drove a Pantera for a few years. I guess that's considered a wedge car? Maybe not. Pretty cool car.

    A windshield like that isn't going to keep many bugs out of your teeth, is it?

    The first, Bizzarini Manta


    The shot of the Bizzarini Manta would have been far less illuminating without that stylish surfboard included. Not sure how you carry it on the car though.

    Top surface of the board matches the curve of the roof - half a dozen neodymium magnets buried in the laminate should see the job done.

    I remember driving a few sports cars. They were a lot of fun, but not very useful insofar as being a family car. Most of the people I knew that had them, also had family cars.

    It is fun to see different concepts by different people, but, for most it's a dream world.

    Hard to get a more wedge shaped car than this.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I very much like the look of the "wedge" standing between the car and the surfboard, though she also looks like she would just as likely kill me. Danger though can be exciting.

    Doesn't get much wedgier than the Esprit unless you're Bart Simpson being followed home from school by a pack of eighth graders.

    Does this qualify?

    "Reason and facts are sacrificed to opinion and myth. Demonstrable falsehoods are circulated and recycled as fact. Narrow minded opinion refuses to be subjected to thought and analysis. Too many now subject events to a prefabricated set of interpretations, usually provided by a biased media source. The myth is more comfortable than the often difficult search for truth."

    OMG! Look over your shoulder before you change lanes and it blinds you. Brilliant (poor pun). That has got to be the dumbest design concept I have ever seen.
