Do You Believe in Reincarnation?
Take a look at the 2002 Mini Cooper, and all its styling cues hearken back to 1959. It evokes images of '60s swinging London and Monte Carlo Rally wins. But look beyond the big round headlamps, the chrome grille, and the characteristic Mini Cooper contrasting-color roof, and you'll see a modern BMW in all but name and drivetrain layout.- Car & Driver (August 2001)
Sure, most are nothing more than clever ploys to tug on our softy car enthusiast heart strings. Do I want a green Mustang Fastback just because Steve McQueen drove one in Bullit, or a 1969 Dodge Charger, just because a couple good 'ol boys from Hazard County proved them to be pretty much indestructible? Yes, you bet your ass I do (and if you tell me you never tried jumping in your dad's car through an open passenger side window, then you're doing us both a great disservice).
So tell us which new takes on classic styling are your favorites?
