    Re: Ford's J Mays: The New Camaro Looks Like a Stunt that Made Production

    they want a pony......hehehe......truly funny and true. well ya know sex sells... Do ya think the Mfg.'s get too caught up in the "violation game"? That is the - styling exercises they see - get critiqued for having 'violations'...leading to more and more 'politically correct' styles? Back in the 40's/50's car design was radical mostly because allot of styles had never been built..new ground, fresh ideas...but today we have so much history and data telling mfg.'s what sells an what doesn't, that it seems the same formula has been adopted by all mfg's...no risk takin' anymore. Anybody remember if Chrysler was ever able to make a profit on its specialty cars..prowler,early viper etc.?

    That's funny. The Buick Lacrosse had to be renamed in Canada, because it's a slang French Canadian term meaning to... pleasure one's self.
    HaHaHa...but NO, LaCrosse is a GAME in Canada and many other counties, not slang. The Lacrosse is the Lacrosse in Canada like anywhere else.
    No, I assure you, lacrosse is also a slang term, not just a game. I heard that on an automotive news report and I checked with some French Canadian friends; they confirmed it. The Buick Lacrosse was renamed the Buick Allure in Canada. Google it; it's like a rash. :D http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buick_LaCrosse I'm Canadian, BTW.

    So were the mustangs ;)
    Did they put flower pots in the mustangs too?
    No, they did one better, they appealed to every little girls desire for a pony ;) :P

    Oh boy an OJ! I get a little emotional about this topic.When I was young I wanted to design cars it was a dream I never got to pursue.I come from a family that did design stuff (clothing) and I guess I have a good eye for this type of thing and color and so forth. So to see these jack ass's that get to do this and the ruination of the auto industry that I blame on them partly for not being creative enough or have the imagination to do this right really makes me mad.Someone should tell that guy to redesign the Crown Vic or the Taurus, because he can do a few good retro designs that someone else did all the hard work for him years ago does not make him special. Bill Mitchell was special, this guy...no.

    Kinda reminds me of the same kind of arrogance that came from Trevor Creed over at Chrysler during the dark days of Daimler...

When they realize styling gets people in the showroom things will change. For example anyone see the new Buick Lacrosse (2010) its terrible,another nondescript piece of shit and thats what you get

    If Bill Mitchell or Harley Earl were alive they'd go in there with an assault rifle and do them all in.

    Does that mean he wins an OJ?
