Presented for your discussion pleasure.

Didn't get a chance to watch the video. Based on the tone of the 'article', I probably don't want to.

How can this guy possibly understand the mindset of the buying public back then when he probably wasn't even born yet when these cars were so popular? And, his comments about it's boxy look...like the styling of today's vehicles are so creative? I can't tell one vehicle from another unless I look at the badging.

Agreed. With very few exceptions, the only styling difference between all the manufacturers these days is the shape of the headlights, taillights, and grille. Otherwise, might as well all be the same vehicle.

Hmmm....I stopped about 45 seconds into it. You figure that backpack wearing skinny jean millennial even owns a car?!! If so.....

Maybe this guy should comment on the design of cars from the 30's....its called technological evolution within the automotive industry. We have evolved...and at times..... maybe...maybe not.... for the better.

Exactly!

And, his comment about the "bench bumper". Yeah, you moron...those saved the front/rear ends from thousands of dollars in damage in a light hit; unlike today's cars with their plastic fascias.

Looks like he was plucked fresh off the campus of nearby (to me) kent state University. He probably has a Masters in gender studies and can't find a job. This is probably the best gig he could find.

And a "Y" body? Shared with corvair? WTF?
