Which two vehicles would make the most romantic couple? – Readers’ Choice

Love was in the air last month as Valentine’s Day came and went in a flash. For a bit of light-hearted entertainment, we were wondering which two cars (real or fictitious) would make a great romantic couple.

Our Facebook matchmakers came up with their own vehicle pairings. Here’s what they had to say:

  1. Aston Martin Rapide S and an Alfa Romeo 4C. Both are sexy! – PJ
  2. 69 Dodge Charger and 55 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop. – NP
  3. Herbie the Love Bug and a BMW Isetta – RL
  4. 1969 El Camino SS and a 1967 Shelby GT 500! – PC
  5. Two Chevy Silverado trucks! One pink and one black. – KM
  6. Lightning McQueen and Sally Carrera – AA
  7. 1963 Porsche 356B and a 1974 Chevrolet Corvette – NR
  8. Susie the Little Blue Coupe & Mater – TJ
  9. My 2005 Mazda 6 and a tow truck! – BB
  10. A Pacer and a Pinto – JS
  11. Eleanor (67 Shelby GT500) and an Aston Martin DB7. JL
  12. The Model T and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang -JH

  14. ’65 Aston Martin db5 and ’67 Corvette Stingray – RS
  15. Batmobile and Knight Rider car (KITT) – BF

Funny you should mention the Batmobile and KITT from the Knight Rider series, BF. Did you know that one person, the late George Barris, created both of the original cars for television? Listen to the King of the Kustomizers discuss his creations in a 2010 interview with Minnesota Public Radio’s Talk of the Nation.
