Unsung Heros Of Mass Production, Great Lookers Category (#1)
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as the cliche goes. Or, as a friend says when someone comments negatively on the appearance of his cars, "You do you, I'll do me." On the other hand, as my sainted mother sometimes muttered, "His/her taste is in his mouth."
The idea for these posts came to me in (where else?) a parking lot. These cars are my nominees for great-looking, affordable, vehicles that nobody talks about. At least, nobody has grabbed my arm and said "Look at that!" Nor do I recall ever saying anything similar, even though they registered on my radar. These posts may correct that in a small way: honorable mention by someone, once.
The first couple/few, at least, will be of contemporary or relatively modern cars. And I will forbear from nominating my own 2005-2009 Mustang and the Generation 8 Honda Civic. Those cars were obvious choices, but then I would nominate them, wouldn't I?
Other nominees from readers of this blog? (Or thumbs-down on mine?)
First up: the Generation 7 Toyota Celica GT:
