1974 Chevrolet Camaro has to be in the top ten; the 1970-1/2 through 1973 were good-looking cars.

ENOUGH of your trolling. You've had your say in this thread so i've deleted the above post. One more anti-BMW post and you're out for good.

And what does making it look like crap have to do with safety? It doesn't look like a Jetta anymore!!! So what if it's safer? They ruined it.

Re: Worst redesigned styling

new Audi A4 and A6 are inferior to their previous designs. I don't mind the BMW 5 series design, but 3 series is ruined. ALL Mercedes look quite worse, except for the SL. Mitsubishi Galant...my god, what the hell happen to it? The new upcoming Eclipse doesn't look good either. I don't like the current Accord, too bulky and simple. The retro Mustang doesn't look any better than the modern Mustang it replaced. The GTO is really boring. Cadillac, just drop the angular theme. That's about it.

I actually like the look of the new Charger. It looks like it has a lot of power but is still practical.

Ok if you're going to bring back a famous muscle car there are a few things you need to follow.
First, if you talk to most people they'll tell you that you don't put four doors on a muscle car. Before there were muscle cars there were the big four door family grocery getters that were turned into two door muscle cars. People want that two door muscle car Charger, not a four door grandma grocery getter.
Secondly, they seem to be putting some Viper here, Intrepid here, 300c, ect all in the car. They seem to be following the GTO with Grand Am all over it. The thing needs to be an original design and they need to listen to the fan base who want some of the '60's designs in it.
Finally, practical and Charger shouldn't really be in the same sentence. Maybe they could make a practical version and then have their high end one that looks like a real muscle car but not all in one.
Also, a couple of people say that if you look hard enough the Charger looks a bit like the new Mustang. Do you guys see it?

Wow, good points on the Charger thinking, my mind was going the exact same way

but do you really think theres enough ppl in the V8 2door speed machine range? Every guy who remembers the days of the charger probably has a family making the car you envision too irresponsible a purchase...


However, the fact that Mercedes...err I mean Chrysler keeps coming up with these not really sports sports cars leaves much to be desired....Ill stick with my 250hp turbo 5sp manual Legacy thank you, its irresponsible enough for me

Re: Worst redesigned styling

Even though I'm not a Bimmer hater, I would have to say that the worst redesigned styling belongs to the BMW 5 -series.
And the runner up would be the Ferrari 612, which has replaced the beautiful 456!
Sorry, I take it all back, I detest the new Peugeot 407 more than anything to be perfectly honest...

Re: Worst redesigned styling

04 gto is a really bad car and i own a gto "not 04" and i feel bad sayin this but the car disgraced the name. Its just a holden monaro with some minor emblem and interior chnages, not to mention its the slowest LS1 powered vehcile ever built"thank god they switched to the LS2". 05 still looks like crap no matter what.then theres the charger. a 4door muscle car WTF was the dodge designers thinking. your killing the name like u did back in the 80s with that shitty 4cyl wannabe charger.

Yeah, the new GTO is too bland. I mean, I like it, but its not very "out there" design wise. Mabey the redesign (2008 i think) will be better.

According to C&D (if i remember right) the GTO sold 8000 as of October, while they were planning something like 15000 sales for the year... and I can't see why people would buy it now if they wouldn't buy it then

I think GM hopes the 50hp boost from the LS1 to the LS2, as well as the new aerodynamics package will attract more buyers. I doubt it will, but I think it would be sad to see GM with no sports car between the Cobalt SS and the Corvette to compete with the Mustang GT.
