Driving down the road on any given day you will see a myriad of various cars and trucks. But they all look the same. ‘Hey, there goes a Town & Country! No, wait – that’s a Grand Caravan. Or is it a Voyager?”
Most vehicles made now days are just one particular automobile re-badged for diverse companies. Original, huh?
We need some new style in the automotive industry. We have to have the originality that we used to have. Like in the 1960’s when originality was a huge part of vehicle design.
We have to have far more cars like the Chrysler Crossfire, or the Ford Mustang, or the Dodge Viper, or any car that is certainly unique and stands out in a crowd. That’s the kind of car that people want to buy. Not some cookie cutter minivan with sixteen DVD players and comfortable seating for 43,000 adults.
I might have exaggerated that minivan part a bit, but I don’t think so.
Possibly now that GM and Chrysler are restructuring and formulating new plans to stay in business they’ll look at making their vehicles appear diverse. Chrysler has a new partnership with Fiat, which will hopefully bring some new life into the battered industry. Fiat has some nice automobiles, not my style, but nice cars none the less.
Another thing that could be nice is to actually release more in the concept cars we see at the auto shows. Generally, they just release a slightly different version of a car they’ve always had. Like the Ford Taurus. I liked it when they called it the Ford Five-Hundred.
Chrysler has had some seriously awesome concept cars lately, but a whopping 0 of them actually turned into purchasable cars. Most of them never even got considered for production.
So when you’re thinking of buying a brand new car, appear for one that looks diverse and original. The additional people that go for the exceptional, the far more diversity we’ll have around the road and thus, better looking cars will be made.
