I look at these as sculptures, reflecting the ideals that the car represents; freedom of movement, speed, power and status. Sometimes these result in lines and forms that are inspiring and graceful.
Other times, it seems like gratuitous decoration.
But the patina of age makes them all interesting to me. Even the most mundane car becomes interesting when it's 30 years old or more.
