Whatever happened to spacey, U.F.O. space-age design? Gone forever and replaced by boxy clones and spiky Manga cartoon shapes? Car design and development in the doldrums it seems, bound up by weird hybred bumps and undefined fashion styles. The details on the Cougar remain understated, almost bland but still striking. The mirrors look an odd shape, flat at the bottom and like a tear drop above with quite a small actual glass area. They are also rigid and designed to knock-off (not so keen on that feature) but they work, as a piece of design and from a driver's perspective. OK?
