    Not even kidding when I say we just did a major service on one of these. Great car in person and doesn't get nearly enough consideration for being an outstanding car aside from the Lamborghini community.

    You do the 350 or a 400? How the back of the roof is handled with all the tumblehome and pillars is really nice.

    TR7. I'm reminded by G. Giugiaro's comment:
    when he first saw it at the 1975 Geneva motor show, designer Giorgetto Giugiaro paused and stared at the TR7, then walked around the other side and gasped, exclaiming: "Oh my God! They've done it to the other side as well."

    Just sayin'

    I remember being very disappointed when the TR7 debuted after the brain trust at Triumph managed to ignore/mangle/butcher Pete Brock's lovely TR250K built for Kas Kastner years earlier...

    John, who in the hell is in charge of the GM truck design studio; clearly they never went to design school!!
    These 2019 & 2020 Chevrolets are evolving into Hot Wheels caricatures! I'm thinking they're smoking Lexus front end stuff....

    The answer is yes I know all of them.
    Several are very close friends.
    They all are graduates of top design schools with many years of professional vehicle design experience.
    I'll leave it at that.

    On another note, the Suburban was awarded with a star on the Hollywood walk of fame earlier this week.
    How many vehicles have had that distinction?

    What about the Plymouth Suburban..??? Produced from the 40's - '70's.
    No love there... but I guess it wasn't a movie star like the 'Black Chevy Suburban'.

    They should've done the front end so we could see all 20 headlights.

    I don't agree with @noone1 often, but here we see eye to eye. Although I know we are in the minority, I am one that actually LOVES the design. It's okay if you think i'm deranged.

    :)
