When the "Thunder Bird" came back to life a few years ago with the "Retro" incorporated design of the past I it was fugly...
Then they started with other back to the future designs, it seems now to sell a car Detroit, Oklahoma City or Mexico is turning out one right after another. The PT Cruiser, Mustang, Camaro, Charger, Challenger, HHR, VW Bug ... ARE THERE NO DESIGN ENGINEERS left the Automobile Industry...
The uniqueness of the retro has grown LONG in the tooth for this ole boy... bring on some FRESH Ideas for us to hate, get used too, then fall in love with
"Quality, not quantity""The American people will never knowingly adopt "SOCIALISM." But, under the name of "LIBERALISM," they will adopt every fragment of the "SOCIALIST" program, until one day America will be a "SOCIALIST NATION," without knowing how it happened.

GM styling agrees with you too. That's the reason the Camaro was not a old school look-alike. And they have been outselling the true retro Stang. That's something they rarely did back in the day.
There are times for thinking, and times for acting, but the art is in the balance
There's always going to be a niche market for retro but I'm surprised the Big Three have managed to sell as many of these cars as they have.
Speaking of a GTX.....I remember racing a Plymouth GTX one night in my 65 Vette Roadster.....I got him off the line and he was coming on but we had to shut down early...now that's retro.......
I haven't minded the retro look. The originals sold cars back then and that look is selling cars now to a whole new generation of kids who grew up listening to their fathers talking about the good ole days when men were men and cars were cars and you could get 104 octane at the pump...........
