Looks matter, at least they do on this week’s episode, where each Window Shopper was tasked with finding the most beautiful car out there for under $20,000. We all found the challenge more difficult than we anticipated, and some of us did better than others.
Joining the Window Shop crew for the first time is Gary S. Vasilash, the founding editor of Automotive Design & Production magazine, a co-host of the Autoline After Hours webcast, and the editor-in-chief of the Autobeat Group. Vasilash presents a Bentley that certainly looks good and meets the budget, but it causes us to ponder if elegance is the same thing as beauty. Contributing editor John Pearley Huffman selects an inarguably gorgeous Cadillac from a decade when GM ruled the world. But is it more beautiful than the two Italian beauties that follow?
Contributing editor Jonathon Ramsey attempts to exploit a loophole in the rules to present a replica Shelby Cobra. He is forced to admit that some (really all) assembly is required and that, at our price point, you wouldn’t even get an engine. His static-art choice gives us fits, but when the fiberglass dust settles, we crown a winner.
