If you like old Astons, this short but informative article is worth reading. Retrospective: The 1976 - 1989 Aston Martin Lagonda Saloon. The fact that Aston slapped the name on a recent crossover-looking thingy is sad and will have even young guys asking "what are they thinking." And we thought the SS Malibu Maxx was an abomination.
This '76 model is so odd it's cool - sort of like a Citroen SM or modern Citroen C6. There seems to be a bit of late 80s Oldsmobile Trofeo in the styling along with a little 1985 Cadillac Seville. Of course the Aston predates those cars by at least a decade. By the way, there are tons of cool looking car pics over at NetCarShow.com - that's where I stole this picture. Then again, I like the Buick Reatta and just said two Citroens are cool so what do I know?
