The T wasn’t the first automobile ever, but it still has its place in the history books. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile ever made, the car that opened travel to the common middle-class American. Without the popularity of the Model T by Henry Ford, who knows if we would have the other cars on this list?

This was the car everyone dreamed of when it first came out in 1967, and it was one that they could afford. The firebird hood painting took this car to its own level of iconic beauty, and being the star of shows like Knight Rider didn’t do any harm either.

Volkswagen Beetle

The one and only car ever made by the Delorean Motor Company, the DMC-12 is simply known as The DeLorean. While it was really a rather bad and unreliable sports car, no one can argue that it's looked just amazing. With it's gull-wing doors and a fiberglass "underbody", there is no wonder this car become the icon of the "Back to the Future" film trilogy.

Aston Martin Vanquish
