Recently, we've been showing and talking about who is ripping who off. Is that what is going on though?
While looking at that Buick Lacrosse post this morning I turned my thoughts to the 1950's, often seen as a peak in American automotive design. Looking back though, many of those cars seemed to be ripping each other. Wild amounts of chrome shooting down the side, ludicrous wings potruding from the trunk, etc. Was that a trend, or copying?
