Thoughts

>> The serious high-end luxury cars were the ones that changed most. <<

So did the jeep. Aside from retaining the shoebox shape it's nothing alike. It went from open to closed, lightweight to heavy, a lot more stuff on it to break, and now you can't fix it with a wrench in the middle of the desert.

>>I don't know if Dodge did or not, but I know Ford actually sent former owners surveys, "Does this look *to you* like the car you owned and loved?" They realised they really lost their way with the II in '76 and put a LOT of effort into bringing the old mystique back. <<

Very astute.
