Remember the old Holden,Falcon, Valiant,...had their own individual look, same with the earlier 4wds, to a point, Jeep, Landrover, Landcruiser,Nissan, had more of their own individual style,..Dosen't matter much I guess but personally I like things a bit different to the next bloke when it comes to a vehicle I like.


Cheers Axle.

A lot of styling now is driven by aerodynamics which has led to a certain blandness. In the modern vehicles the Paj has gone from ugly duckling to a beautiful swan with a few subtle changes. Where as I liked the 120 Paj the 150 is rather ugly. Mind you my old Jack will last a few more years yet.

I've noticed a lot of them have slanted headlights. Maybe coincidence LOL.

Now I don't know if anyone else has noticed this but, have you noticed, most of the popular vehicles look like they are smiling at you when viewed from the from the front!

Grinning, more like!

I have noticed, though, that there are some truly strange LED configurations for DRLs, from ticks, to eyebrows, to all sorts of strange shapes.

Notso,
You're bang on the money and let me assure you that what you've stated is NOT a coincidence either.
There's a few things our yellow friends are big on. The number 8 being one of them, the other is a "happy" face. Apparently it appeals to their market more.
I was privileged enough to sit through a styling workshop with our Aussie designers a few years ago.

Good pick up.
Fab.

Hey axle you could buy a Land Rover Defender just to be different.
Wait a minute that was on my short list a while ago!

Actually my wife often says you used to be able to tell Mercs & other luxury cars from your average car but now they all look the same.

Cheers

Yes I say the same often too
You could put a Merc badge on a number of the cheaper brands and no one would notice
Likewise some of the Mercs are quite ugly and just the badge sells them

You want ugly?

Google Mercedes Benz 220 1962.

Ugly front, ugly back and even uglier dash layout.

But I guess it sold because it was a Mercedes.

I think all the "styling" is done in a wind tunnel and on the scales these days.

Cheers
