Even before I bought my '93 90S, I held the belief that the Dorf Tortise
(Taurus) was just a cheap knock-off of the 5k series (the Eagle Premier was even
more blatant). After I bought my 90S, I started noticing how the newer Acura
(and Lexus and Infinity) 4dr sedans look amazingly similar to my car, including
the hood that dips down and includes the grill. I guess it's true, imitation is
the sincerest form of flattery.

Oh, the old Tortise was a knock-off the the 5k, the new one is just
exceptionally UGLY! (especially the Avant version)
