Really? American cars IMO range from excellent to bland, but ugly is hard to find, aside from the infamous Aztek. I can see and understand the PT Cruiser but I can't think of something else offhand as being particularly offensive. But, being close to America I see all the American cars all the time. What do you see in NL, maybe the Dutch have no taste in American cars

Remember the Subaru B9 Tribeca? That one surely deserves merit LOL, maybe even worse than the Aztek, which at least had a certain coherent philosophy of chaos.

Ssangyong is still going and their models don't look that bad anymore.

I personally LOVE it and when I was younger, I promised myself that I would buy it when I it will be possible, and I still want to do it!!
I also love the Avantime. It's just a very very cool car! BTW, it's one of the few cars all three top gear presenters loved as well.

About ugly cars, there is a Fiat Multipla which I see about every day parked in my street.

In other news, I forgot to say last week I found a €1 coin with king Felipe VI of Spain in the reverse. This makes up for the lack of commemorative €2 coins I had lately.

Maybe it's because I'm used to french cars, but I personaly find it original and quite "normal" now, not ugly...

Yeah the back of the Megane is the best part of the whole car!
Otherwise it would just be another eurobox

Anyone remember the Toyota Previa? That was a pretty strange vehicle. I haven't seen one in some time, aside from a neighbor who had three broken ones in his driveway for years.

So I realize that I asked this a few months back as well. Any news on the clinched highway mapping site? Are there any alternatives? Thanks!

Yesterday I spent night in Slavonski Brod. Cosy town, very lively. I know this topic is still very sensitive, but I hope all subjected members are calm enough, but one thing caught my attention. The landlady has hung orthodox icons on the wall so first I though she is Serb. But then I noticed the framed prize with photo of Franjo Tudzman, Croatian coat of arms and something about Domovinovski Rat 1991-1992. Is not it quite rare? Orthodox Croat?

4.4% of Croatian population is Orthodox.

Hey, Rome wasn't built in a day! There's a prototype of the database on a different server but it seems that I've clinched almost 90% of the German Autobahn network meanwhile .

It's a layer on google maps with zoom feature. One can combine systems and regions, e.g.: http://www.teresco.org/~terescoj/travelmapping/hbtest/mapview.php?rg=AUT,BEL,CHE,CZE,DEU,ESP,FRA,HUN,ITA,LUX,NLD,POL,ROU&u=michih (please switch to satellite view, I think it looks better).
It's just a prototype of the database/map but the website itself is not yet implemented (the implementation of a prototype has recently been started: http://travelmapping.sammdot.ca/).

The total length of the network is incorrect because concurrent highways are not yet accounted for the calculation and many features are still missing (browser, stats, reporting,...).
You could contribute with programming skills. Please refer to aaroads.com/forum for more info.

Some users have already provided their data so that Jim Teresco can test his database code: http://www.teresco.org/~terescoj/travelmapping/logs/.
Up to now, Jim only wants to get list files of existing users with experience. He's willing to upload their log files (e.g. from bogdymol, Chris, cinx, spinoza,...) "if they'd like to check it out." "Anything that doesn't look right is worth reporting."

You can login on aaroads forum and sent a PM to Jim or sent a SSC PM to me. You'll get Jim's email address for sending your list file or to allow Jim using your list file from the existing cmap.m-plex.com data base.
Stats are outputted in the log file. I clinched about 97% of the German Autobahn network now and 30,000km in total (my today's data from E68.ro is not yet uploaded though)

Thanks. So how should I format my current list file or could someone else do it for me?

The Avantime is far nicer, the Espace Mark 2 is quite thematically similar. But the Vel Satis is a horrible lump.

I own a _minor_ classic 1980s French car, the Matra Murena, so I should know. It cost me €60 and very little since bar petrol of course. (picture below not my one which needs some work)
