What Car Has The Best Rear?

Illustration for article titled What Car Has The Best Rear?

We like car butts and we cannot lie. You other auto-lovers can't deny. When a car drives in with a round thing in our face we get sprung. So, what car has the best rear?


This question was the cause of much debate in the internal-Jaloposphere, with various arguments being made for various cars (all of which we expect to see brought up in your conversations). In the end, we yielded to Wojdzilla and the 1936 Auburn Boattail Speedster. We know what you're thinking: what about the Rolls Royce Phantom 1 Jonckheere Coupe? Sure, it's a great-looking rear and totally scary but... would you mount it? No. It would be painful. You can luxuriate on top of the Speedster. The back-end of the car is larger than some small cars. Turn the car around and you'll see a beautiful classic vehicle coming towards you. Just get out of its way. It's gorgeous. It's voluptuous. It's huge.

BTW, Ray made us ask this question. We're not sure why...

Also, '57 DeSoto, '59 Chevy, '58 Plymouth, and pretty much every boattail and fastback, with the '66-'67 Charger topping that list- that car is just sexy inside and out.
