I agree. The front is awesome but the rear just doesn’t make sense.
I’ve always had a soft spot for orphans as far as cars go, the very well considered and lovingly proportioned swan song sort of cars. Late Corvairs, practically any Studebaker hardtop coupe, some AMC designs, step down Hudsons, even imports that had to withdraw like the truly astounding Citroen DS.
I’m glad some people appreciate them, treasure and preserve them. My circumstance has never permitted collecting, but those are the sort of vehicles I’d go for. Bill Mitchell era GM had some stunners, too, as did Virgil Exner era Chrysler.
I did nearly purchase a 72 GS 455 boattail Riviera a few years back, it was a deal, one owner, Sunday go to meeting driven, knew the family. Didn’t have space for it though, so I passed.
