  4. Re: If you like this...

    Ford's trite use of "classic" designs in their most recent cars is a far cry from the attempts made by other manufacturers to improve the aesthetics of their vehicles. This car lacks the conceptual design cues that makes the new car market appealing. Cars like this and the Thunderbird have taken too many visual hints from previous cars and have attempted to roll on to the production line. Ford has obviously dug themselves into a deep hole (as far as designs go)and they are placing too much emphasis on re-producing the nostalgic cars of the past.

    <b>you idiots make me laugh every day. Saying a company sucks decause YOU dont like the styling is so #$%#ing retarded. By the way the F150 lightning is a total peice of shit comapered to what you could make on your own using aftermarket parts for the same price. I have been a ford fan for all my life, but that is not to say that I like all of thier products. The 49 concept is a great use of older styling cues and you can't knock ford for anything other than their automatic trannies and that boring ass V10 they make. This is a very realistic concept unlike most other manufactures who make cars like the SSR that will never have a real place in the marketplace.

    PS. yes I do like chevy too but that ssr is #$%#in horrible excuse for a car, but it does have a good drivetrane.</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    uhm dude... cmon I agree with you that criticizing the cars just because of the styling is stupid, but thren why are u so biased about >Chefvy'ds upcoming SSR? why is it a terrible excuse for a car?

    Compared with the original Lighting, the current generation Pickup is simply outstanding, outperforming its predecessor in almost every performance measure... hp increased a lot and u know, why taking the risks of having up-market modifications done to your car when u can have them factory-certified and guarantied... I guess that's the purpose for SVT, AMG and other in-house tuners alike.

    And yeah ... J. Mays is coming with some incredibly cool concepts lately... those retro machines have a great future, though as Mays admits, maybe not in the way you think...

    this is to all of you who say this cars sucks (especially you Dinan):

    obviously you are few in number b/c the response to this car was overwhelmingly positive. cars like this and the t-bird have a following, thats why the t-bird has a waiting list over a year long, DUH! it's not just a re-hash of old car design, it's a complex mesh of nostalgia and modern design/technology that gives a new car the impression of a beloved classic car, while improving aerodynamics, handling, performance, saftey, and the list goes on. it's called RETRO!! and people love it, so sorry guys! it's here to stay.

    ps, i dont like the bel-air, it doesnt resemble a particular bel-air model year, rather it's a jumbled hash of many, mixed in with very mild modern design ques...bottom line: its very ininspiring, the 49 is the opposite. but thats just my opinion!<!-- Signature -->

    ->
    the reason I don't like the Bel Air is that the design came out as a bit of a mixed bag, sure, the new concept captures some of the spirit of the first Bel Air's, but not the one of the most famous ever.
    Plus, some parts of the car (like the front fascia) look more Chrysler's than Chevy's... not that I don't like Chrysler, but that car wasn't what I was expecting from Chevy<!-- Signature -->

    Ahh, Teenagers. MAny of the people Ford is targeting with cars like this actually LIKE older designs over modern ones. In fact, many actual adults think that modern designs look like shit, and that older desighs are where it's at. Since those adults buy most of the cars, and have most of the money, guess who gets listened to?

    In fact, your "design analysis" shows you have very little understanding of both design AND the market in general.<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. Re: If you like this...

    I do like the Bel Air and this '49 concept. I love custom cars from the eras these are patterned after.

    But then again, I also like Chrysler. <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
