Every time I look at mine, its impish grin makes the mornings better and takes away all the lethargy at the end of the day. Then all I hear is "So where to this time around" and off we go it's another road..another adventure....

Well, most self-made tycoons have typically had such a childhood . Branson, Jobs, closer home - Modi...then, they grew up! Believe me, you have to see the new 5 on the road / in person. I am completely in love with BMW's new design philosophy (started with the 7).

First off, the NE looks immaculately well maintained, though I am not a fan of this car, but admire well maintained cars.

I completely agree with what you have put here, and thought I was the only person with such weird thoughts in my head.

For the same reason, I liked the Accent because of the way it looked. When I booked my aveo, everytime I saw the accent. I kept thinking I have made a mistake and I should hav checked it out. But alls well that ends well, so finally due to some unforseen turn of events went in for an Accent

the Camero certainly has that naughty smile!

we have a Getz (Dec 2006) and i've always felt she "eager to go wherever" expression - smily grille and blinking eyes (headlights). my wife and me love our car so much that we call her the "Kutti Mousey" coz she's kind of a lil' mouse (although she's anything but little)

Nice thread. As a kid I would also imagine cars frount to be its face. Headlights being the eyes and radiator grill being the mouth or nose sometimes. I thought I was the only one thinking like this. Nice to know about so many likeminded people

I found this pic today - a Linea and a City

From the Star Wars reference, it looks like beautiful Amidala (Linea) hounded by Darth Vader (City) in his facemask behind her

^^ Linea looks elegant and city looks geometric to me. None of the cars have a 'smile' on their face

Congrats on hitting century

saar I said None of the cars have a smile on their face (Linea & city)

Nano doesn't have the best smile though.. I think it is the older Indica. Vista looks damn serious though!
