Everything in life is derivative. The moment you see something you like, guess what you've just been influenced. The only way to avoid this is to live in a cave.

Nevertheless some designs could be construed as a "rip off". I don't think this new Ford grille is a "rip off" to be honest, any more than Ferrari and Porsche grilles are rip-offs of the Lamborghini Reventon grille (which was the first to do the angular dual left/right grilles). It's definitely been "inspired" by the Aston grille, and no-one can deny that.

I thought the joke had promise, but it lacked a little in execution, I think too much redundant verbiage ruined it, or a lack of a credible link between mouth girl and the grille. Not to say that I could do a better job - I can't think of anything funny to link the two pictures.

Maybe:
"The designers were having a tough time coming up with a good grille design whilst speeding around Vegas drunk going 130 in a covertible Mustang. They took one look at the stoned hooker in the back and said f*** let's just go with that."

That's the best I can do. Lame, I know.

*disclaimer: downed some Jamaica rum whilst writing this, so not responsible for the results.

Really looking at this car now. Wife's had hers since 01 and she loved it. Great gas milage and had good power in the mountians here. Its gone to one of our children now but still chugging along. Checked one out a couple of months ago and was impressed. Might wait to see if they come out in 4WD.

By the way scrming, when are you going to tune that thing? Keep us posted.
