The Cadillacs and GM Generally Rules when it comes to design and in some ways execution.

This car is a work of art. Nothing from Europe comes close

The Model T. Remakable car. I loved it. I would like to own one someday

A Model T Variant-Pie Wagon (its really just a panel van)http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4005/4277861341_a8e59c2171_b.jpg

The Cruze-Seen one or two in surrey, but this one looks really neat. It sort of caught me off guard. Very understated, and extremely classy. GM will probably sell lots of these

This Lincoln is absolutely stunning. If Lincoln is ever coming to Europe, this would be the perfect brand launch vehicle.

Lincoln needs to tame the nose somewhat for its small size

The only part of the Fiesta that Ford dropped the ball. Here and the back seat. The materials here are tapperware cheap, stark contrast with top of the dash

There were lots of really neat Camaros, but I did not take pictures. This however, I could not pass

WOW - I like the MKS but it doesn't do THAT much for me, Mchicha ;)
(of course I haven't seen the RKSport version in person either...)
maybe in a few years when Lincoln goes global, you can get its nextgen :)

&
really *LOVE* the Converj!!!
thanks for taking this shot

of the rear - think I'm developing a fetish for Cadillac trunklids http://home.surfree.com/~pauld/perplexed.gif :blush:
&
tho I *hate* the "C" concept,
think you really caught it best feature here
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4025/4277886201_ff5a3934cb.jpg
the lovely, soft Arch of the way they integrated the grille & HL's
I hope they use this less aggressive, more voluptuous styling nuance
when they MCE the existing split-wing Lincolns
&
last... this shot
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2790/4277862901_e8b66dbca7.jpg
makes me think the solution to my dislike of the Cruze's front end (in addition to a different HL shape)
would be to make the top section of the grille look like a built-in SCOOP - wouldn't be hard!
