Dreaming Of Spiritual Successors To The Great Ones
In my view, Chevy hasn't produced a spiritual successor to the '55-'57 models. The current Malibu is arguably as close as it's gotten, but it falls short because, while good, it doesn't stand out from the competition. As for the Volt, it's a laudable effort, and it stands out, but doesn't come close to generating the excitement of the '55 Chevy.
Two other models that were standouts in their day were the '62 Corvette, and the '65 Mustang. Spiritual successors to these models would do wonders for their respective companies. The current Mustang is good, but it's more evolutionary than I would hope for. For my taste, it's also too large and heavy, with less back seat leg room and more difficult access to the back seat than the smaller '65. I'm hoping that the next generation Mustang will hit the bullseye.
What are some of your favorite trend-setting cars, and what should their dream successors be like?
