Without question an enduring design. Look at how may years they remained relatively unchanged.
And who hasn't helped a buddy change the motor in one of these babies. 4 bolts and she's out.
And hey who says the beetle is a dinosaur :D

Your right (attached is the Tatra 1933 V570) It seems Ferdinand Porsche was involved in the first designs as well.

I checked out your link and had a look. The shower/tub was designed by Ron Arad. He is an Architect who does a lot of product design apparently. A bit more of his work.

You really should take the time to view his work.

Yup, Tim Cooper is amazing, he has such an attention to the tiniest detail, I remember his Police stilleto's, the miniscule lights were modeled to the tees.

I'd love to have the time and try model and render the webber charcoal BBQ myself, it will be a hard challenge but fun.

Might be a worthwhile challenge sometime (hint), those are always hard for me but I learn so much. I was knocked out by his work. There is one on the "Behance " site of a chocolate elephant on a biscuit, it is amazing. This is the image I stumbled upon that I followed up on and found his work.
