We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Maggie meant to say "classic design" - perhaps "timeless design" might be better. It was an impotent little car, badly marketed, but Giugiaro's Italdesign from 1979 though 37 years old has a clean contemporary look even today. IMHO.
Definitely the Isuzu Impulse. I worked in the service department at an Cadillac/Olds/Isuzu dealer (how's that for eclectic?) back in the early 90s. Saw those way, way too often. Besides the fact that they were not very reliable, I think Cash for Clunkers was rather hard on them. That's why you don't see many of them these days.
