Essentially, automotive design is an evolutionary process. Every year, small adjustments and changes are made to almost every car. Design trends come and go like college crushes. Today’s cars look almost nothing like the cars of 20 years ago (unless it’s a Chevy Express van). This means they share almost nothing with vehicles made 50 or 60 years ago – for better or for worse.

There was a time when all cars were racing on barges with some kind of rear spoiler, covered in chrome and pent up sexuality. We then overcorrected the growling mouths of the muscle cars to prove that we were virile Men. From there we entered a second barge era, but with much less flair – we were giving up. But then we found our footing again with the melting soap era of the 90s, the weirdness of the mid-2000s, and the cookie-cutter formula of the 2010s and early 2020s.

All of these eras had very distinct style cues. You probably want to see a return of at least one of them, and we want to know what it is. This is today’s question: which style element should return to modern cars?

Classic doesn’t necessarily mean 50s or 60s. It could mean something from the early 2010s. Do you miss GM’s amber halogen running lights? Go with God and tell us in the comments. What about fins on 1950s land yachts? Everyone loves flippers. Tell us about it. Pop-up headlights are the fucking meow of the cat.

For me though, I’ll probably go with spinners. I know they were never technically offered by any OEMs, but they remind me of a childhood when I played Midnight Club and watched Are we already there? Yes, they’re tacky and awful, but damn it, I want to see them on cars again because they’re fun and goofy too. We need more fun and craziness.

My answer clearly shows that there are no bad opinions here. Let us know below, my friends.
