    Some of the cars are "ugly" out of necessity, so to say.

    Before the development of the V (opposing cylinders on each side of the engine), the cylinders were in a straight line. Hence some old rare cars with large engines look pretty strange.

    Sometime aerodynamics win out over aesthetics. Many of the super exotic sports cars are most likely uncomfortable, and not much fun to drive unless you're on a suitable racetrack.

    Of course some designs don't age well.

    I meant the newer cars. I like the long hood design of the classic straight eight Duesenbergs and 1930s Buicks. The new Honda Civics look like they were styled by a bunch of dyslexic twelve-year olds with a box of crayons.

    Sad to think. I hope that those are old photos, and the cars have been rescued. As I understand it a very large number of classic American muscle cars were discovered in one junkyard, and that's most likely not an isolated incident.

    The top one is a Bugatti 1938 Atlantic Coupe.
    While the bottom one is a 1948 Buick Streamliner.
    The Bugatti goes for about 30 million because there are so few left.
    While the Streamliner was pretty much a one of a kind and was found in the dessert almost intact but still cost thousands to rebuild.
    I don't even know what it would go for.
