I'd pay real money for some of these old body styles with modern bits in it. That analog shit is off putting to me. Reminds me of a rotary phone. Always fuking up dialing that last digit.

Hey at least you remember rotary phones. I am willing to bet that a lot of the members of this board have never used one.

"Modern bits" is subjective.

Just saw the latest savage geese video on the new Genesis SUV that has a….fingerprint reader lol.

Wtf.

I'm over all these stupid gadgets in new cars. Give me '80's to early 2000's styling w/ better collision protection.

Are ///M the only in-house tuning company that develops one off hot rods by themselves for fun? Like that Z3 with the v12 swap? Or does AMG and other in-house tuner have similar museums and "secret" garages?

Wouldn't it be awesome to get classic body styles with multiple screens littered throughout the cabin? Oh and don't forget the nightclub ambient lighting and subscription heated seats. Lol. Jk.

All jokes aside, one of the things that makes a car a classic is the analog interiors but I see where you're coming from with better safety features, airbags, BSM, etc. There's a fine line between some modern features and a fully digital direction modern cars seem to be heading.
