Oh, I wouldn't say they have no style. They have a different style then what you like, perhaps. There are those of us that actually like modern vehicles and not only tell them all apart but see and appreciate the style in them.
IMHO all the cars from the mid-to-late-70s all look the same: big, square, and ugly!
I tend to agree with your opinion on late 70's vehicles. As far as modern ones, who can tell a chevy from a ford from a toyota anymore. That was'nt a issue in the 50's and 60's for sure. Having said what I did, for some reason I am a little bit drawn to the original subject in question.
