The car at the 33 second mark is the early 2000s Sebring coupe.

Agreed! The 98-04 Concorde, 01-06 Sebring, etc. still look "new" on the roads today. I think it stems from the car's curves and lack of sharp edges.

If you look at the Grand Cherokee, you will see it looks more like a successor to the 2004 model than the 2009 model. That's because Cerberus allowed Jeep styling to do what they wanted, rather than the boxy, Daimler styling imposed on all models.

Totally agree.
Saw a 300M Special yesterday. Absolute beauty of a car.

I still don't like the disconnect between grille and headlights on either of the newer models. I certainly don't like the scalloped headlights, on any car, but that's a personal thing.
Personally, like anything, it's all in the application. Scalloped equals niether good nor bad to me. I Liked it on the 300m, and the Sebring. And, accordingly, the scallopped lights on the 300m was not the work of Daimler. I like it on that sebring too, although that wasn't on the initialy 2001 coupe IIRC, that came later, and likely was the work of DCX.

But, I HATE the scalloped lights on the WK. I just have such a hard time liking that vehicle. Bad, bad interior, materials wise. It's only redeaming value is the Hemi as an option. (Although having driven it side by side with a WJ Overland with the high output 4.7 in the Overland, the older WJ can hold it's own pretty damn well in that config). The WJ Overland is a FREAKING NICE Jeep. It dwarfs it's immedate successor in almost every way. The 2011 GCs though, reclaimed many of of the shortcomings. With the exception of the suspension - and I will stop there. lol

Love it too. Though I've never really been in the market for a car, this has been on the top of the list of used one's I'd buy. Along with the '02 Sebring coupe...
