Tom Tjaarda, one of my favorite automobile designers, passed away on June 1, 2017.  He was responsible for the styling many beautiful cars.  Here is a short piece I wrote about him a while back:

What's wrong with the rear tire, it seems oval?
Optical effect due to camber? Or real oval tire to get a bumpy style? :D
