Any Blade Runner fans on here? For some reason the Cube reminds me of something from that future era. I wonder what people would think if I customized a Cube as such...

Funny you should say that as I get the distinct impression that the rear end of the CUBE has quite a 1932-34 period look about it.
Somewhat of a retro '30's look about it
I have lately been looking at books of old cars and the Packard's and Buick's of the 1932-34 period have quite a CUBE look on their rear ends and roof lines about them.
I even found a picture of one car with back door opening just like the CUBE with hinges on the left.
Of course it was not as good looking as the CUBE's back door.
Nothing new under the sun perhaps.
One observant friend said he got the feel of a London taxi cab passenger entrance door when opening the rear passenger door of the CUBE.
The CUBE's height has a lot to do with I think.
Am I just not 8) to think this.
Does any body else notice this '30's thing?
Cheers,
Bryan.

Some of the lines - yes. Also a hint of model T in some respects. Strangely enough this all still ties into Blade Runner which had some 30's (or was it 40's?) influences.

From the 30's to the future, eh?

So we can agree that the Cube is "timeless"? :D
:yes: Oh yes the CUBE could be classed as timeless as it has many attributes in it's styling to say "from the 30's to the future" in its lineage. 8)


By the way did you know that Datsun [pre-Nissan] in their pre-war car production start up were helped in their set up by Austin of England?
Says he driving of in his Twilight Gray for another day of Cubeing. :yes:

Cheers,
Bryan.
