Without a doubt. That the stylistic lines are essentially the same
as they were in 1966 is nothing short of amazing. I suppose some
Mercedes come close to the same phenomina, but I can't think of
a single care from a US, Italian, French, British or Japanese
manufacturer that's been that timeless. Well, okay, the 2CV, but
I did say *car*... :-)
