    Old vs new American car design

    Would yo prefer the design of an old American 50-60's car or the contemporary American car?
    Let me underline, this thread is about design, not efficiency and safety.
    Please share your thoughts.

    **** was way more badass looking back then. I also prefer we all wear suits and ties again too.

    Cars from the 50's and 60's had soul...personality. Their look was unique. Modern vehicles (for the most part) look almost interchangeable. Blech.

    I take your point about safety but good design goes hand in hand with good safety. That said, American car design like the ones below are just stunning pieces or road art.











    I like the new Corvette Stingray though - not sure it will do well outside America as it will need more than just looks to compete.

    Re: Old vs new American car design

    GM cars in the 60s generally had the best style of any US cars.

    GM is now regaining some high quality styling with the Corvette, the new Caddies (CTS's)

    Ford in the 60 not so much, it had a few good designs (Mustang, Torino's) but not much else

    Mopar had the Challenger and Charger back then, but most others were rather bland. Today outside of the 300 and Challenger its designs are rather bland

    I dont like the 50s designs, nor thee 70-80's of the vast majority of US cars
