Forget 'retro'

I don't really like 'retro'. I mean, the PT Cruiser is very ugly. The only retro cars I like is the retro-designed SSR and concept Nomad from Chevrolet. Besides that, designing the 300C to make it 'retro' was a horrible idea. Forget the inspired design from Shelby Cobra in 1966. Its not 1966. Its not 1952. Its not 1912 for goodness sake. Its 2004! Bring on the cars that have advanced technology, not the same dashboard as a 62' Mustang! In 1955, they pictured cars that could fly. Why didn't we come up with the technology like that. Meanwhile we're stuck with a whole bunch of gas-guzzlers in which every 2 miles you have to get gas. :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

As for GM, I do regret saying that the Nomad and SSR are cute, because once you look at them in true life, you see that they're really ugly!
I don't know about the Nomad, but the SSR is great looking in person!
