1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Look at this hideous design:

    Even the interior looks ho-hum:

    I always thought a Rolls was a car to be driven in rather than drive.I was in the back of one over the weekend and it was pure heaven.I am not saying it isnt ugly but sitting there watching the world go by was Utopia.

    I saw a white RR Phantom on my way to work this morning and while its not pretty by any definition of the word, it is damn imposing, which I have previously stated is what the designers were going for.

    Dammit Dodge... YES! This is what we've been waiting for!


    I agree.

    Bring back the Challenger.

    A 1971 Dodge Challenger convertible was the first car I ever owned.

    I'd love to buy a new one (when they come out with the SRT Convertible version.)

    I always thought VW missed the boat when it revived the Beetle...

    they should have also gradually brought back cars from their heritage like the Ghia (2 seater roadster), Squareback (stationwagon), fastback or the Notchback (coupe), Thing (SUV), and the 21 window bus (minivan)...a full updated lineup that pays homage to their retro past. imo that would have been a killer collection of cars. but instead they put out garbage like the Toureg...!

    Today I saw a black Citroen DS, which was very outstanding.

    At least they are bringing back the Scirocco... sort of.

    P.s. seen the new Mini yet? And the anticipated wagon version?

    The Karmann Ghia would indeed be very interesting if revived, especially if they did a Type 34 as well as a regular line.

    Yea I think so. The "new" Mini will be for the '08 model, longer wheelbase and snout. personally I like the current version aesthetically better altho it sounds like the '08 will be superior mechanically. and I saw the prototype for the "wagon" which i really didnt like. I like the go-cart nature of the current Mini's, and don't see the need to turn it into another subcompact a la Civic/Focus
