Ok, we are all bored because of the weather. So, here's a fun idea. Kinda like playing 'F, Marry, Kill' - the rules are:

- post ONE photo (feel free to include description) of a sheer triumph in automotive styling.

- in the SAME post, post ONE photo of an epic fail.

Kinda like showing a picture of Minka Kelly standing next to Roseanne Barr.

I'll go first:

Triumph:

1934 Rolls Royce Phantom 'Circle Door':



Fail:

1980 Cadillac Seville 'Slant Back':

Pick any Duesenberg really, but I'll go with the model J. Looks fast standing still. ImageUploadedByAutoGuide1395941239.953693.jpg

Fail:
Acura ZDX

Because they were the only company dumb enough to try bringing back a modern version Aztek!
