It’s the little things that can make a classic car remarkable, or an otherwise ordinary car at least somewhat respectable. Most of the time, a vehicle’s fuel tank filler sits behind a big, obvious, round or rectangular door cut into one of the rear fenders. This is often visually at odds with the overall lines of the car.
But sometimes, designers go the extra mile to make the fuel filler location less obvious. That’s your Hoonatic task for today: name all the disguised fuel doors you can think of.
The Caveats (there are always caveats):
- I deliberately used the word “disguised” rather than “hidden,” because the fuel filler/door can be hidden in plain sight by integrating it into the lines of the car. That definitely counts.
- Locating the fuel filler in an out-of-the-way spot doesn’t automatically fit this description. I’ll let all of you debate whether the XJ6’s fuel lids are obvious fuel fillers or cleverly disguised, rather sculptural trim pieces.
