Car enthusiasts love to sit around drinking beer and arguing the merits of their favorite vehicles. Ultimately, what we all want to determine is: What's cool? What cars really get attention at a show or on the street? What cars make their drivers seem cool?

Automobile Magazine polled their staff and contributors, whose prejudices have resulted in a fascinating take of the nature of automotive coolness. They whittled their selections down to a highly subjective list of the 100 Coolest Cars, presented here in descending order. Let the arguments begin!

I only know about a handful of those cars that you mentioned in the list, but I will say that the car in the picture looks awesome. I guess I really should be looking a the car classified ads. My little Ford Ranger is about to completely die any day now.
