Seven models guaranteed to sweep you off your feet

Most automobiles are simply built for utility and convenience; cookie cutter designs take precedence over panache. There are a handful of models, though, that embrace their charisma and exude an attractiveness that appears in our wildest dreams.

While romance is a subjective concept, some vehicles are simply more debonair than others. We at The News Wheel consider these seven models to be the most romantic (and we mean in a charming way, not a “hey gurl, isn’t my truck sexy?” way).

An iconic model that embodies the courtships, chemistry, and lifestyles of a generation, the ’57 Chevy is a beauty from tip to tail, with the type of rear bench seating you could get comfy in. It was a sensual car for many half-a-century ago, and it’s still a sensual car for anyone who sees it today (plus, it helps that it was the car from Dirty Dancing).

Many times, we consider romance to be synonymous with lavishness, adventure, and intense passion. Real romance, though, isn’t about the one unforgettable night; it’s about the ten thousand nights that follow in which that love remains committed. That’s why there’s nothing more tender, chivalrous, or poetic as your lover driving around your kids in a well-worn family vehicle.

Remember, it’s okay to admit that your partner looks sexy in a minivan.
