These are the five generations of the Honda CR-V ... still see plenty of First Generation CR-Vs on the road here in Appalachia. The front grille and cargo area side windows are the things I look at to tell them apart:

I was surfing around the various auto manufacturers' websites looking at cars ... they're all so boring now, but I did find a few that interest me. I left out the Bentleys, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, etc., which are all over-the-top. (Click on the images to enlarge them.)
Update: I've added a Bentley and a Porsche due to popular demand. I *do* prefer orange or yellow paint.

While I was away in China for the past decade, American car manufacturers started to make these retro muscle cars, and I actually don't hate them. I don't think I'd ever buy one, but they look surprisingly good. I might rent one of each for a day, assuming I can find them locally, and give them a spin.
The Dodge Challenger is the ugliest of the bunch, thus it appeals to me the most:
The Chevy website is sort of broken and hard to navigate, and the pictures are not good ... none of this inspires confidence. Nevertheless I was able to find this picture of the Camaro Z/28. It looks like a Nissan rice rocket to me, you know, the GT-R, or 350Z or whatever. It's all-American characteristics are not distinctive enough for me.
Lastly we have the Ford Mustang ... again, from this side view this GT looks like a Nissan to me ... boring. But from other angles it looks a bit better, more distinctive -- it has great tail lights, for instance. Nevertheless, on the basis of style alone, the Dodge Challenger is the clear winner, in my eyes.
Final look at the Challenger in red, no striping:
I spotted this funny looking little car the other day and snapped a pic of it. I'd never seen one before. Turns out it's a Toyota 86. I don't think this model is available in America, but I could be wrong. It's cute. Too small for a tough guy like me, but still, cute.
