The look of technology has always seemed to inspire the designs of automobiles. Cars have changed and been reincarnated into new, more extensive vehicles. As an example, old cars like the Model A (one happens to be in my garage) shifted to the likes of a '71 Pontiac Lemans convertible (mine of which is in the shop getting fixed up) to Hybrids. Now the environment should be taken care of, but why can't we have those cautious qualities in our old cars, or make every car enabled to take Grassolean (biodiesel that is a vegetable oil based fuel) as their fuel? The loss of sturdy and profoundly reliable cars perhaps has taken its toll with the new, supposedly more powerful automobiles. And to be honest, the boxy look is not my style, but hey, you may like it. The reason being perhaps is they way you grow up - appreciating that retrospection of history or not fully being surrounded by it to understand it.
In my opinion, tradition exceeds futuristic precision. Trends of decades past often resurface, but it is doubtful that the authenticity, especially in certain big-engined cars, will ever be incarnated again. Cars change as do the times. They grow and get old just as we do. Maybe that is another reason why people care so much about them - after years together they get attached. It's almost like a love story. You meet, fall in love, and maybe separate. Cars are a large a part of our life. We want to choose the right one, the one that fits us best.
