    Cool Lancia Stratos 2030

    Apologies if you can't get to this destination, but just wondering what you all thought?

    I'll put it out there - I like it!
    I have lots of hidden talents. The problem is, even I can't find them!

    I think it's part of this modern nostalgia trend. People will look at something iconic, and try to update it in a modern way. I don't mind... it's perhaps an attempt to reconnect with a time "when things were better", I dunno. But if you do this, you have to be prepared for brickbats as well as praise...
    I suppose it's the automotive equivalent of a remake of an famous old film - same story, modern production values - or a cover version of an old musical classic. Could be good...could be rubbish...!

    I think the rear two-thirds are pretty neat - but the square front-end rendering strikes a discordant note that jars with the smooth lines behind. (with the 2030 date - it ought to have a stack of batteries and an electric motor as well !)
