New-fashioned
It would be great if the car makers would make classic cars with the identical look of what they were back in the day but with modern technology. Ford sort of tried this with the Thunderbird with its elenth generation in 2002 that was a failure because the car had nothing special about it. Ford was banking on its name recognition and psuedo-retro look to make it popular and profitable. If it had something noteworthy (375 hp, 40 mpg, etc.) then it would have succeeded. Manufacture a cars with fully modern suspension, engine, brakes, etc., but with the perfect appearance of a 1957 Thunderbird or 1964 Mustang. Same for the classic trucks.
