Everything changed after WWII in car styling.
First we started getting Ballon cars (aka lead sleds) which just looked like bloated bubbles with chrome. Then they started with the slab bodies and fins. Only a few cars like the Corvette and Thunderbird understood the beauty of understated style and not copying the copycats. I mean, prewar we had pieces of art created by coach builders but after the war there were few truly unique pieces of art.
