I see NOW what you are saying. The goat has the stacked headlights which tends to draw the eye somewhat away from staring just at the grille area, but the goat's grille to me comes off as much more refined. Now I look at the goat's massive front bumper!

Of course, stacked headlights aren't probably very aero, but just cosmetically wise, how do you feel about that general look, all these Pontiac's, and Fairlane's,
Comet's, etc...

Do you feel differently about them now, than you used to?

This is the chance for some of you married guys to vent.

Yes, someone is actually asking how YOU FEEL about something on a subject matter that maybe you can relate to!!!

I appreciate Mark Donahue's championships, and I see they are trying to match the Swirl
on the upper quarter panel. The rest of the car I admit IS an aero improvement over the earlier models.
Maybe the tire POWER? hump is supposed to be an !!!!!!!! mark to remember like the engine compartment air release vent humps on the Superbird/Daytona???

I wish they had put the pointed end at the tail of the car. Maybe then it would be more accepted - at least amongst the 'Joe Dirt' crowd.

Maybe more Mk3 Passat with the 3rd side window - aka sixth light.



Also a thing of beauty...

Nothing. That's " Joe Dirt " from the movie of the same name. He drove a Charger Daytona in the movie.

The movie is a waste of precious life. If you haven't seen it, don't. You didn't miss a thing .
