What I would like to see is some retro modern cars come out. And not cheesy ones like the Pt Cruiser and HHR. Some retro American cars, A retro 60's styled Volvo would be sweet... or VW... How about a pickup truck that's offered in a modern form or a (tastefully) 50's inspired style but they're both mechanically the same for make production feasible. There are a lot of possibilities out there.

I think the idea has so far been best accomplished by the Mustang of the last several years. Mini and Fiat 500 aren't bad shots either.

Maybe its not a new idea but it would break up a lot of the monotony on the road. I'm no design artist but I can't very well see a new never before done direction in auto styling.
Volvo kind of did a retro of the 1800es w/ the C30.
