Office Chair.

I don't understand Scottish too well.

I'm not sure what I think about it. Probably cool but I hate it.

The bronze brown and standard looks don't help but this is a cool car. As a retro mod it is sub zero though I'd accept the argument that the poll is more about the generic car.

It looks rubbish to us because we had swoopy futuristic masterpieces like the Morris Oxford and Standard ten which had nice wheezy 4-pots instead of thirsty heavy V8s.

the blue one I like, the brown one... parts of it are cool, but not sure that all of it is cool, though. Wondering whether it may have some contemporary rivals and what they look like.

The Nomad is rare and hard to find now and when you do find one, even if it's in need of total restoration they are very expensive. All 1957 Chevy's are highly valued in the states not just the Nomad. An original in showroom condition can sell for as much as $100,000.00.

For all rules there are exceptions, this one applies to the the "all fast estates are cool' rule.

So the boot hinges are at the bottom. This either means that the bootlid opens downwards with a great big expanse of glass at it's upper edge waiting to be easily smashed, or that the only way to get into that big space in the back is through a small opening at knee level.

The bottom half is hinged at the bottom, the top half is hinged at the top!
