ES is huge - they started with the Avalon this time, not the Camry.

Size wise the ES has typically been bigger inside than the GS. I tried fitting into a GS, no way, but the '96 ES was fine. And now it's bigger.

I'm surprised there's that little difference in overall length and width of the old LS versus the new. I still see old ones every once in awhile, and while they do have a dignified stance about them, they tend to get lost in today's sea of minivans, crossovers, trucks, and even bloated, high-beltlined intermediates.

Out this morning, saw maybe the nicest Catera left on the road - looked brand new, elderly couple in it.

I almost never see the late 80s to mid 90s XJS coupes or convertibles. Heck I rarely even see the ones from late 90s. I wonder where they all went?

Junkyards, garages, backyards on blocks. Someone who works on my block has a ~90 XJS cabrio, drives it daily.

I still like the 97 and up XK models. The same guy that penned the modern Aston DB7 (I think) did the Jag as well. IIRC they're both based on the same platform and they both do look alike.

I thought those were good looking as well. I went through a period, in my late 20's early 30's, where I figured that if I ever wanted to look rich for cheap, I'd splurge on a used one.
However, I guess the maintenance on one would probably ensure that I'd never get rich...

Well, it will never depreciate to nothing - all cars have scrap/parts value
Sightings lately - white 80s 911 cabrio, immaculate late W124 wagon, pop up headlights Accord covered with mold/algae growth.
