The automotive equivalent of Rod Stewart singing standards

Like any sensible, well brought-up person, I love a sweet-looking muscle car. But I'm no fan of the re-issues. Even when the new models are well done, they just seem to suggest that Detroit's best days are in the past. Can borrowed glamour really be considered true glamour?

Yeah, those new beetles just look boxy and odd... although they have the slight advantage of not being prone to burst out in flames and kebab you.

But safety and glamour aren't the best bed-fellows.

Yes, vain as I am, I'll sacrifice glamour for the kebab-proofmobile any day.
