    maybe Roger,
    but when You really look at todays cars You often will ask yourself :
    Which was first and which is still a look-like copy.
    Specially if You discuss cars front or back side

    IŽll think designers of the 60th or 70th have had a really good hand to create something really new ..........

    Mostly this is because of the regulations. Pedestrian protection has a large impact of the front design too...
    If you are looking at pictures from the forties where many cars are present, they look all the same (more or less); same for the fifties: the general shape of the cars is very similar, only details are different. Who knows, maybe in 30 years from now, people will find that the cars from 2010-2020 had a very definite personality!

    And of course the periodic flashes of brilliance in a vast sea of "eh...." are what we remember, and even the generic machines look pretty interesting when they're taken out of their original time frame. Sort of like how fragments of ancient pottery are so much more interesting than what's left of the coffee cup you dropped last week.

    Markus, I assume that the original car had also a wood structure. Nice job!
