It seems like the car industry has been working really hard to make its cars something people want. (Although they’re still dragging their heels on gas mileage.) I’ve always been somewhat amused that a lot of the ‘hot new cars’ are just really, really old models with a bit of contemporary flair.
I want a ‘new’ car that looks like this one. A rumbleseat in the back. (Although you might have safety issues in 2008, as opposed to 1930.) A spare tire on the side. (Functional.) A giant chrome grille on the front. A soft-top convertible. And windshield wipers that come down from the top of the window. And big bug-eye headlights. (I really don’t care for the massively-crooked style of photography.) Check out the fins on the blue car with people in front of it.
Maybe another car that looks badass and yet is a convertible.
Or how about hyper-round, from the vehicle frame to the windows? Just design some awesome-looking cars that don’t all look the same, give them good gas mileage, make ’em safe, and make ’em cheap.
