I don't see the resemblance, but the Lexus RX series started in the late 90s, following the Toyota Harrier.

The Aztec was around ~2000 I think, with production ending in 2005. The RX has been a mainstay ever since introduction.

The sad thing is under that horrible styling, the Aztec was actually a fairly decent car.

The Aztec was ugly the RX is ugly...that's the correlation he's joking about.

While Lexus can make a solid reliable vehicle, they are some of the ugliest on the road.

You missed the Corona. Didn't they stop making it in the late 70's (at least in the USA market)?

No doubt the RX is butt ugly! I've never understood the appeal, but they do drive nice (although the handling and dash layout is really weird).

Not my cuppa tea.

Damn, never made that connection before. Makes perfect sense since they were all pretty much the dame car.

Dang, beat me to it. The Celebrity was my first car (hand-me-down) and my parents had two Luminas.

This. It was ahead of it's time. Unibody crossovers were a very small niche at the time, and now it's what everyone and their brother buys.

Chevy cars...??

How bout all of Pontiac and all of Oldsmobile.

If you were to look at the frequency of repair records for the Chevy Nova in the late 80's and the Pontiac Vibe you will see they stand out above and beyond anything that GM ever built.....they were some of their best cars.

They were both made using Toyota parts and engineering...

Its easier to take a piece of poop and re-brand it as something new when your customer base doesn't know the difference.

whats a list of cars chevy has dropped?
The few I know about are Vega, chevy II, Nova, chevette, Citation, and now Impala.
which ones did I miss?
It seems like you're implying that the cars that are dropped are duds because of problems. Some (many) are also dropped because of market changes and there is no demand anymore, or have been superseded by another platform.

What would you say about the Model T? Did Ford drop it because it was a dud, or did it just get superseded by something better?

You had my hopes up with the Blazer. Searched it and I wouldn't any more buy one of those as a prius. Embarrassing to take an icon and change it to a girlie car.
