What Are They Thinking At GM?

Holy Zarquon’s Singing Fish. I just saw a commercial for the new 2010 Chevy Equinox SUV, and the hairs stood up on the back of my neck.  Whatever they are smoking in the styling department at Chevrolet, it must be pretty righteous shizzle.  Take a look:

And now, take a look at the 2002 Pontiac Aztek, widely considered to be one of the ugliest cars ever made:

Wow.  Wow, wow, wow.  The more things change, the more they stay the same.  Can you imagine a more clear example that people don’t learn from history, and are therefore doomed to repeat it Is it any wonder that GM is about to pass into history like the Studebaker and the DeSoto?

There.  I feel a little better now.  See you all in a few days.

    Well, kids – GM is still at it. I know it’s hopelessly optimistic of me to expect that their styling department would suddenly start turning out hotly awesome looking cars, after so many decades of “designing” ungainly doorstops. Certainly, many of the cars are reliable, capable, and will last longer than the loan payments. But… geez. Here we go again – the GMC Terrain.
