I’m sure I’ll take some heat for this already blazing hot take, but I am consistently turned off by a lot of “50s” design. The early 50s were quite bland, and American cars from ‘58 to around ‘61 or ‘62 were largely an orgy of hideous excess. I would argue what people think is great 50s design mostly settled into the… Read more

She just posts them here as well. I certainly wouldn’t invite Eric Shilling to review my car after that Jaguar piece where he just took… Read more
