Honda Crosstour Design Inspiration Discovered

I knew I’d seen it before. Recognize it? Full (wood)body expose after the jump:

There actually are some advantages to being old the new thirty-six. Not that I was around when this 1941 Chrysler Town and Country first saw the light of day. But would anyone under the age of fifty pick up a 1974 edition of “Chrysler and Imperial” at the used bookseller? The Crosstour’s arse has been nagging at me for some time, but when I got to the T&C section of my latest bed-time reading, I knew that someone at Honda shared my interest in old vintage Chryslers. Agreed; or am I staying up too late?

    well i saw this car /wagon when i purchased my first civic and i must say i was smitten. i love the ride height and adore the styling. ok maybe the subaru is a little less expensive but i think this vehicle is a work of art. also if it has the accords durability and trade in value which is still to be determined it will sell well to honda owmers who like to trade up. no accounting for taste but i love the styling no matter how impractical.

  • Lou_BC While we discuss Chinese cars, Chinese politics, and Chinese global desires, I'm looking at TTAC and Google display advertising for Chinese tires. They have nukes aimed at us but their money and products are acceptable to consumers and business?

  • Tassos As somebody who is NOT a stupid fanatic about EVs one way or the other:No manufacturer has built a "Better Tesla" EV yet. Most have tried, we wait for TOyota only (last hope for the Tesla haters)UNLESS a DIRT CHEAP Model 2 comes along (will never happen in the next 2 or 3 years), Do NOT expect that 7% to go to even 10%, let alone the ... 30% clueless Idiot Joe Biden voters expect. If anything, PLUG INS and HYBRIDS may, in the SHORT term, bring the 7% down.
