Remember, aircraft are eligible as well. There are lots of pretty airplanes.

@TayLaLaLa: Frankly, I think the DeLorean's styling looks like a toy car made of cardboard. But chacun à son goût, as I always say.
I have liked it since that movie. I wish I owned one. I think has a nice clean look.

Nice. I love balloons. Come to think of it, I have a balloon avatar that I could have entered.

Any more entries, people? There are still plenty of classic cars to choose from. And there haven't been any heavier-than-air aircraft so far.

What are you expecting something like Concorde to be entered?

Oh, I don't know . . . Concorde, the WWII Spitfire, the original Learjet, F-104 Starfighter, to name a few.

Or how about an antique horse-drawn hearse?

I'd like to see at least a couple more entries before I put up the voting thread.

^I was referring to publiusr, who has deleted the first post. To me, it looks like direct links to Wiki. And they're still not avatar sized.

@ publiusr: The clipper ship is gorgeous. But it needs to be cropped and resized to fit avatar rules (max. 150 x 150 pixels).
