What boat/car associations do you make? What would you called a TopGun in the car world? What about a '51 OL?

What about ......
You guys are single right, if I recall...

Then go out and get some trim and stop talking about dumb sh!t like that, so us married guys can keep living vicariously through your hit and runs...

Cars....

Apache 47 is a Gull Wing Mercedes 300- classic and irreplaceable
Fountain is a Corvette- fast cheap and a me too vehicle
Outerlimits- Ferrari- limited production and everyone wants one
Cigarette- Porsche 911- The standard by what all others are judged by/ classic design that is unchanged for years
Baja is a Ford Mustang GT
MTI is a Lamborghini
Formula is a Mercedes with a model for everyone


GLH is right you guys need to think more about girls than this ridiculousness.

Finally,
Several people thinking the right way. How dare you guys equate a Cig to Corvette level and the OL to Ferrari level. They are both low production hand built masterpieces! They are both highline machines on the same level. You could say the TopGun is like a Ferrari with awesome overall acceptance as the king and Holy Grail of the performance boat market. The OL would be more like a Lambo. Lower production, not as recognized, yet coveted by a an exclusive group of people who want to be a little different and unique.The Fountain would be the Corvette. Outstanding performance from a high production company at a reasonable price.

51 OL = Supergharged Rolls Royce: Big, bad, powerful and exotic
Ciggy = Supercharged Bently: Powerful,sexy,hand crafted
Skater = Ferrari: nuff said
MTI = Aston Martin DB8: powerful, beautiful lines, no interior space
Nortech = Mercedes Benz: Refined,powerful,fast,luxo performance
Fountain = corvette; Fast, good handling, affordable to the masses
Baja = Ford Mustang: entry lever performance
Eliminator = Superformance: Fast,custom,awsome fit and finnish
Apache = V12 Packard. Performance legend. Timeless design. Big, heavy,great ride.
