It IS odd. I had no idea it weighed so much. I DO know that the interior (esp the comfort of the seats), is sorted IMO. If I needed a DD to haul people around, and if I could afford it I would have one. I'd probably live in it: I'd be looking for excuses to take roadtrips more than I already do. I'm unsure on the looks, but it's just odd enough that it suits my odd taste in things.

People that thumb their nose at the Abarth don't know what they're looking at. I drove a Smart when I was in Greece, and it was perfect for what I needed it for. Good-looking? No. After driving one from St. Louis past KC, I wouldn't EVER drive one anywhere other than around a city/town.

This Sky's not perfect, but it's perfect...for me

I see more similarities to this:



The new Vette has had performance numbers rivaling "super" cars for a few generations now... Might as well start to look like one.

Minus the obvious lack of any need for huge side or roof vents

Be a part of the solution!

For some brands the 2 can't be seperated. Function dictates much of the form. Does an Si Honda need it? I don't know, but if you're wanting to remind the public that a car they can afford has some of the same styling as the flagship car of your brand then you'd better have some styling cues that remind the buyer of that car.

On the 2019 Corvette, I agree that the transformer toy styling does nothing at all for me, but if GM is correct (it happens, if rarely) there are more people out there that will like it, than not.

To me, there is absolutely no comparison between that angular, and yes, ugly styling and the simple pure styling of cars ike this:

I don't know...I"m partial to the general understatement of Ferrari, but I'd think that many (not you necessarily, wspohn) would feel differently if the 'vette (and the others) were debadged. The "blind taste test" might change minds. BTW, wspohn, did you put those pics in order of preference? I'd rank them that way, that's why I ask.

Indeed I did!

Not as happy about the Maser eggcrate grille nor the nostril on the nose of the Merc.

I'll add another one - current Vantage - think the grille could have been done a bit better, but still much nicer than the Vette.

Gorgeous car Elf, I don't think I had seen a picture of it before. I always watch the Alfa commercial, really like Red, but the black looks fantastic.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The Sodlstice goes back to the first Corvettes, rounder and some what bug eyed. That is what takes the car out of it for me. I hated bug eye sprites and MG's.

But I truly wanted to make a Solstice look like a 57 to 62 Vette. That was my plan when I bought the Mallett. Personally I like the interior of the Solstice, minus the tan and gray fugly stuff. Looks more like a sports car than the Sky to me. Like the lines of the Sky better though.

I guess there are similarities between the 1962 MG and the 09 Solstice, but for my part I am glad there are.

Hey different strokes for different folks. I never knock the Solstice, I would take one with out a doubt. Had one and enjoyed the journey. Just like the looks of the Sky better.
