    Wow...it's mind-blowing just how much automotive styling has NOT advanced, in recent years. Think about it. That Taurus came out in 1986 (not the SHO, but that style). 29 years ago, yet it still looks modern today. Heck, considering the retro craze of late, and the way cars have gotten taller, blockier, and with higher belt lines, it looks MORE modern than many brand-new cars.

    Now, go back another 29 years, from 1986. And you end up with my '57 DeSoto.

    I guess there's only so much you can do with modern cars, though. There are only so many aerodynamic shapes out there that can still hold passengers and their luggage, meet modern crash test standards, fuel economy standards, etc.
