Comon, isn't this one of the most original four door saloon ever built? Cool!

An "uncool" from me, hate the looks and everything about it. Since its a rare car its saved from being seriously uncool.

Hmm, I don't know. I mean, it's the kinda car if you see it on the road, you go "whoa", but then when you look over that first aspect of surprise, you realise it has all too many faults in the design, reliability, power department, and so on...

It's imposing, but so is a an old Caddy, and that doesn't necessarily make the Cadillac "cool".

So to me, it dips just below cool, and into the uncool territory.

Cool. Badly built, but the looks and extravagance make it an easy "cool".

Cool because it is so rare, and different - kudos to Aston Martin for building it

It isn't beautiful enough to give it a sub-zero, so a regular cool from me

Ugly but cool, just because it's different and your neighbour probably wouldn't have one of those

I say it's cool, just because of it's history. Ston Martin were desperatelly struggling with their profits in those days. So a natural thing to do would be to produce a sensible car, but they put this totally crazy thing on the market. It was one of the most brave moves in automotive history.

It's cool. Ugly, yes, but I've seen a few. It's cool.
And that black dash when it is switched off is deliciously 70's sci-fi. 8)
