      It's a toss up between my Chargers or my Challengers. I love both tail light designs.

                First up for me is 70 charger but all Mopars are up top on my list. I really love the space race cars from Exner and crew, also the baby fin Mopars. Imagine if they tried that today , to have art/deco tail lamps . I love my SRT but man most cars just get a corner combo light and that’s about it... Oh I can’t for get you have to put the LED lights in the headlamp that look goofy to make them cool, or give them mean eyebrow look. Why not build a better looking car?

                The new tail lights these days either make me dizzy or make me want to vomit (or both).

                  new cars in general do that to me. Compared to the classics of the '30s to the '50s...no imagination at all.

                    Cars of yesterday didn't have to chase the "Efficiency" standards required by today's designers. Thus much more attention to esthetics and fashion fads could be entertained. Some with not so successful results. But many with some of most eye appealing designs of all time. This design "Efficiency" chase starts with aerodynamics. And it turns out the most efficient design that slips thru the air is egg shaped. Unfortunately the "egg" is not esthetically pleasingly. Thus it's tough to get that shape looking sexy. One good modern example? Bugatti Chiron line. Fastest mass produced supercar. (There are faster "Production cars" But very limited availability.) Me? I think the Bugatti is a bit on the ugly duckling side?

                      Shinny paint and chrome wheels would go a long way to knocking the ugly off of it.

                        The Chiron, surprisingly enough, isn't near the top of the list of drag efficient cars. It has a CD of .35, no better than a new Dodge Charger.

                        It does, however have a speedometer that tops out at 500 km/h and is able to use most of it.

                        If I remember right it's because of the rear wing? Even an egg will want to fly at those speeds? No choice but to add drag from a wing to keep it on the ground.

                                  '56 Imperial did have a hidden gas cap though. But not quite behind a light.
