The Fuselage bodies are exemplars of clean, unadorned design. Proof that he had good designs in him, which makes the mid-late sixties B-Bodies that much more egregious.

The RS2 had a pretty-short rear as well though, no?

Let's see: we have (seats up/down?) 13-45 cu.ft (365-1,280 L) in the Subie and 13-23 cu.ft (370-650 L) in the Audi. The Audi is about 3" longer...

The Coronet, and especially the Plymouth Belvedere/Satellite, from about 1966-1969 are some of the laziest and worst looking cars (SUVs inhabit their own vulgar niche) that this country has produced....

There were a couple deadend attempts that focused more on straight-line speed like the big-block longroofs mentioned above and the turbo bricks from Volvo, but I think the RS2 set the blueprint for...

They're selling it as a GT rather than a sportscar, so having a useful entertainment system is low-hanging fruit that automakers consistently manage to **** up.

I can't say it does much for me; it's pretty vulgar. Not to say that I'm disappointed that it exists: I do love 1000SEL's collection, but I think it's quite ugly.

It should be noted that back when this came out, the 'E' in Mercedes nomenclature still stood for "Einspritz".

To henk's point, is the second-hand market in (Western) Europe strong, or do the laws (and perhaps culture) favor new goods?

Apropos of nothing, I would like to include this picture I took as it...

I dig the color in the first four pics. It's interesting that Toyota seems to be dumping the well(ish)-known TRD branding for the much more-obscure Gazoo stuff. Maybe it plays well in Japan, but the...
