Re: RE: [DML] Get rid of the wings

Giogetto Giugiaro made a great design. I am sure that others, beside myself, have had people surprised by the year my car was manufactured in. You would think that everyone would know the car, but some don't. When I say that it is a 1982, people don't believe it. They think that it is new and that I just got it. The design of our car seems to be timeless (doors up or down).
