Default THE UGLY CAMRY

Toyota must have worked over-time to style one of the ugliest cars on
the road. My hats off to them.

It must have designed by a committee. Each person was in charge of a
certain part of the car, and then everything was pasted together. That's
why it is out-of-portion, and is a mismatch of styling cues.

On second thought, maybe Toyotas are quality cars because they spend
nothing on styling and invest every dime, in the production process, on
quality.

I have owned my last foreign car. When I purchased it, I lived in a
colder climate, and the Japanese engineers did not calculate that they
were shipping cars to colder climates. Consequently, the themostat on
the heater, with a zero degree day in the winter, could not keep me warm
as my butt was freezing.

They say aesthetics is in the the eye of the beholder, but to some degree I
concur that modern styling particularly in some Korean and Jap cars is less
than appealing. The Camry is not that bad, but could be better in the looks
department. This current barge-like look will pass,...the sooner the better

SENATOR ZELL MILLER DEMOCRAT OF GEORGIA, the nation's most prominent
conservative Democrat, said today he will endorse President Bush for
re-election in 2004 and campaign for him if Bush wishes him to. Miller
said Bush is "the right man at the right time" to govern the country.

The next five years "will determine the kind of world my children and
grandchildren will live in," Miller said in an interview. And he
wouldn't "trust" any of the nine Democratic presidential candidates with
governing during "that crucial period," he said. "This Democrat will
vote for President Bush in 2004."

He is an idiot, he is buying a domestic, can I suggest a Chrysler with a
FWD A604 transaxle, or how about a recall riddled Focus. :-D Or maybe
one of those good looking domestics, like the Avalanche or the Aztek,
those are some real sweeties! :-D LOL

I think the initial design was smaller and someone decided it needed to be
bigger, so they hooked up an air pump to the tail-pipe and puffed it up and
out so it would hold more stuff. Don't poke it with a pin.

Yeah, he might be trolling, but I have a 97 and I thought it was ugly,
and the next model would look better. The 96 and earlier ones still look
nice.
But instead, Toyota puffed up both the camry and the corolla. When I'm
next to a new camry, it looks like the drivers head is 12 inches higher
than mine.
Honda did the same thing, it seems. I wonder who they're picking in
their focus groups.
Hope they get it squared away, (NOT like the box cars, ha) before I am
ready for my next car.

Actually I don't think it would look that bad if it had bigger wheels.
It looks like it is riding on toy wheels.
