Re: observations on car design
IMO, the original Taurus hasn't aged very well; now looks sort of dull, and the
wagon was/is sort of ugly. However, the new Taurus make the old ones look not so
bad in comparison. What's with the sheet metal crease on the side of the new
Taurus that protrudes out farther than the side molding?
In any case, the '83 and up 100/200/5000 body style is one of the best looking
designs ever (with the proper width tires, of course) and still puts to shame
the some of the new bimmer (3 and 5 series) and mb designs (all). The wagon is
perhaps the best looking ever. The new A6 wagon comes pretty close, but still
gotta love the old fastback design. Even though my old wagon is a thirteen year
old, non Q, non-turbo version, I really can't get myself to let it go because
the body is in great shape, and it looks too damn good to condemn it as a parts
car or send it to the junk heap - damn these good looking high maintenance
Also, very glad that Audi redesigned the A6 wagon, I thought the previous A6
wagon looked too much like a Subaru.
PS: Is "Avant" more PC?

Hmm, I thought the Torus was a little behind some German car that looked
like the space shuttle...
