One more for the nuts (if there are no more surprises as with MG Rover) in what has practically been ‘ Week’ here at my blog.
   I’ve noticed all these people copy this one influential car ’s style, despite none of them giving him much real recognition when one of his earliest models appeared. You know who I mean. And now, when you look at the side of some sedans, you see the same technique used at the boot or trunk: a visible shut line. It’s as though the bootlid is a little shell, so to speak. The rear window finishes higher than the car’s beltline, and the bootlid begins there, “reaching down” to the beltline.
   In the past, you couldn’t normally see the shut line of the boot of a car from the side. But now, I’ve seen it on the Mercedes-Benz S-Klasse, the Lexus IS, the Toyota Mark X and Camry, the Maybach 57 and 62, and the Honda Legend.
   Get on with it, guys. You, too, . Stop copying the 1995 (or Lantra or Elantra, depending on where you were born). It’s been 11 years since we saw this.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
