    Re: Old vs new American car design

    It depends - what style is the 'new' - some 'new' looks ugly, some don't. Some new is sleek, classy, comfortable - others aren't. A 1930 Studebaker looks different than a 1950 Studebaker and the 'new' was better - far better - when redesigned in 1950. . . .which I love.

    In general - I like fastbacks but not the super slopes - I don't like deep sweeps and down turned hoods like the Shelby and Ferrari. .. though the history of those vehicles is very interesting and they're classics, collectors and unique - they just aren't quite my look. Nor do I like the beefy new look of Cadillac, Camero and others.

    Aboveall - I love my 2006 GTO. Because it's mine. Everything to annoint a car and make it naughty - we've done in it and/or on it. . . benefits of living in the country.



    Overall top favorite of mine is a classy Morgan - I swear I want to breath on one someday.

    You're making me miss my toys.

    Oddly enough, though I like my cars old, the majority of them were new, with the exception of a 1966 Mustang that looked just like this:



    I also had a '00 Stage 2 Roush that looked like this:



    ...which I traded for an '04 Cobra that looked like this:



    Then I got settled down, had kids and now all I drive is this:




    Sad story... I know.

    LOL Don't worry - you will be blessed for your prosperity.

    My husband had a 1972 Camero fully juiced up - then a Harley and other cool rides. . . then stepped down to a 90's Blazer and then a 89 Nissan Sentra (which he still drives) and after all those years I felt he deserved the GTO and I secured the car for him.

    I've fasttracked that loan - we'll pay it off in 18 months if things go according to plan - and he can get another nice car.

    I still want a Studebaker - I've wanted one since I was a kid. I will have one some day

    As amazing as the RS500 is, it still looks like a shoebox. No soul to it.

    My husband souped up the GTO - put in a new camshaft and brought it down to a 114. . .that thing feels like a vibrator on wheels. MPG? Nevermind that - it's GPM now. LOL

    All cars look alike because Congress is defining what cars should be.

    The Mayor doesn't recall any permission in Article I, Section 8 permitting Congress the authority to design automotive vehicles.

    Y'all want style in your cars, repeal both the CAFE standards and the laws of aerodynamics. The Mayor doesn't expect either repeal to happen.
    The Mayor should recognize it is incredibly bad form to **** up a perfectly good thread about cars with politics. Perhaps The Mayor should check to see if that 'life' he ordered used from the Pawn Shop has come in yet...
