Only 25 cars eh? Guaranteed exclusivity and an interesting footnote in history. Yet another modern rendition that becomes a caricature of its past self. Not for me thanks.
The best modern rendition to honour the past has to be the 2006 Ford GT. I'd love to put a bunch of miles on one then take it out on track day.
Minis are cool, but simplicity & $erviceability are quaint memories. Actually the serviceability aspect of the modern Mini reminds me of the Chevy Vega with the literal throw-away engine block, and lets not forget the air cleaner assembly (no peaking inside, just $50 every 50,000 miles fifty years ago). Ironically most liner-less Vega blocks were toast at 40,000 miles. A friend had a '75 with well over 100,000 miles, but it had the steel sleeves that started that year. Funny, I don't remember hearing of Mercedes having a problem with liner-less aluminum blocks.
The New Beetle was all about the shape and they captured it. The packaging was sacrificed to the shape and they were tight and a little dumb, if not cute.
I did see a modern Camaro the other day and I did turn to look. Then emminating from it I heard a 4-cylinder automatic with a fart can and instantly I felt sorrow for the marque. I guess I forgot about way back to a classmate's '69 Firebird 1-barrel OHC 6 hydro350 with the one Thrush muffler... With a little rework on that one it would have been cool.
