Spotted this "regular-user" RS2000 the other day, the owner bought it in 1986. By comparison, the styling of the "thing" in the background is a right "dog's dinner" IMO Smile

Rick, I completely agree with your comment on the "thing" behind! It makes the 'black beast' look very attractive

They don't style cars any more. The computer spits out an ideal design "The Stylist" tweaks it a bit to try to make it look different. Then the accountant changes it again to save a few pennies. Hence the "Thing"

Other exciting discoveries lately include this old-style car wash that runs along rails while the car sits stationary.
