Vintage Thunder as chosen by Playboy – Click above for high-res image gallery

Playboy (which we're not ashamed to admit we read for more than the articles) has compiled a list of its favorite classic vehicles. The article, entitled Vintage Thunder, features six vehicles picked to earn a spot in the magazine's fantasy garage.

Three American and three Europeans make the cut, all of which are beautifully illustrated by Etienne Carignan. The upper end of the price spectrum is claimed by the BMW 507 (shown above) while the least expensive on the list is the split-window 1963 Chevrolet Corvette. You can read a recap of Vintage Thunder by heading over to Playboy's website (which is safe for work, as long as you don't stray from the article). If you want to read the full piece, be sure to check out the April issue, which is on sale now.

      Good choices.

      I would say the least expensive on that list is the GTO as in "Pontiac" and not the '63 split.

        Wrong GTO. The real one was not a Pontiac product.

      Beautifully done, just like the rest of the images in Playboy.

      Great reminder of just how gorgeous the 507 is. Timeless beauty.

      As for the list, meh. Not bad by any means, but not what I'd choose. Surprised by the Ferrari and Bel Air choices. Substitute the Dino w/ a 365 GTB/4 or 250 GTO. Subsitute the Chevy w/, well, anything. How about Gullwing SL?? Lambo Miura??

      Fwiw, Playboy, I will take your list and raise-

      1971 Lamborghini Miura SV
      1973 Porsche Carrera RS
      1957 Mercedes SL 300 Gullwing
      1967 Shelby Cobra
      1964 Pontiac GTO
      1959 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta

      Beat that!

        I like your list better...

      I've always loved the BMW 507... and that price confirms my suspicions that I have sophisticated taste!

      The prices are completly screwed up. No way a 63 Vette is cheaper than a 57 Nomad or 63 GTO.

      Looks like Playboy has taste, in more ways than one.

      Indeed, those curves are as good as the rest in Playboy
