One thing you can glean from watching too much Barrett-Jackson on TV is new factoids. I learned that Sid Ramnarace led the team that designed the Gen 5 (S-197) Mustang. Ford's then Senior VP of Design,
J. Mays, called the look "retro-futurism," which sounds like desperate marketing-speak to me.
The executives who approve taking a fashion risk (even a retro one) on a new model deserve all due credit. But the people who conceive the look and refine it in engineering drawings and models scrubbed from all angles deserve the most credit.
It was the modern powertrain and bang-for-the-buck that sold me a Mustang. But it was thinking "That's a good-looking car!" that got my attention in the first place. Thankyou, Sid.
