Take a look at these photos. Are those Fins? Ram Air? There is a faint resemblance to the square headlight but I think you'd have to agree, "Some settling may have occurred during shipping".

I'd like to have those wheels (wheel covers?), though.

Um. If they hadn't changed the design, it would have been unfortunate. I don't think I would have wanted either of those cars.

But my grandfather might have traded his Barracuda for the top one.

Shipping route must have gone past Chernobyl. How else to describe growing of XXXXXXL bumpers and 2 pair of eyes, um i mean headlights?

Not to mention what the US bumpers must have done to all that work with the wind tunnel aerodynamics, and without the front airdam, the front end of R107's do feel a little vague, when driving at speed.

Well, A&L, they do not feel that as they drive castrated verson so I guess driving at speed in US spec SL/SLC is somewhat like what we, the one's with free stallions, call idle speed.?wink, wink
