    ^ That’s not just a standard car except with a yellow interior?
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    I suspect Cadillac ‘stylists’ might have been meth-heads, before meth was even invented.

    Dunno about meth but they were doing lines before laying lines.
    No italics because it's true.
    I mean, does this look like a man who isn't doing lines of coke?

    That's Bill Mitchell, head of GM design from 1958 till 1977.

    Methamphetamine was discovered in 1893
    Cadillac was founded in 1902
    Are you optimistic or pessimistic about the end of the world?

    ^ What's the called? FEVN?

    On different note there's this one from German TV in the 1970s, Geschichten ums Auto - Stories about cars. Apparently the Atlantis Amalfi CS 1800 is a dud, a permanently defective car. It's not hard to guess what the based it on and bits used.

    I thought that was super cool until I read the rear wheel steering part. I like being different but it's possible to take it too far, and a hotrod with forklift steering is definitely over that line!

    I'm pretty sure the Summernats car was a skyline base, not a vs base.

    But that one certainly shows that just because you can, doesn't mean you should.....

    Pear cider reference as per number plate very appropriate.

    EK/FB Holden sedan.

    I actually think it would look pretty good if they put the original front end back on and painted it a period style pastel colour. Would fix the meth that was consumed when the front "fabrication" was done
