Whoa! Most people I know, including 'non car' people believe the styling on
5K/100/200 is downright elegant. I like the XJ styling more ('series', not
40) - but for a car designed in the late 70s/early 80s and produced in '84
with minor changes in 7 years of production, I have to throw the flag. As a
sport luxury sedan I believe the styling is classic - they still look good
next to many of the eggs on the road today. I see plenty of lines copied
from it in Hondas, Toyotas, Nissan etc...
