7.) Jaguar E-Type

The Reason: Men in the 70s were greasy, sweaty, coked-out sex machines with gold chains and a belief in the overpowering attraction of their own musk. Why not something a little classier?

6.) Race-Prepped TVR Vixen

The Reason: If you want to wow her before you wow her, nothing will make someone more happy to be alive than surviving a quick lap in a race-prepped TVR. Speed is an aphrodisiac.

2.) Porsche Tapiro Concept

The Reason: What's more impressive than rolling up in a concept car? Rolling up in this sexy, '70s-ish Porsche concept car.

Suggested by: The Yellow Box


1.) Lamborghini Marzai

The Reason: "
There's only one right answer: Lamborgini Marzal. We're talking 1970's Raquel in a space suit, so aesthetically, it works perfectly in glorious modern white on chrome silver.

And of course, you want everyone to know you're on a date with the most gorgeous gal on this planet, so of course you want the high visibility of a pope mobile with the slick style to blow people away.


Finally, there is the benefit of the paparazzi-perfect leggy shot of Raquel swinging out of the deep seat and high sill under a massive gull wing when you get to the club as well.

It's all good, real good."
