RAM (Random Access Memory) No! RAM as in RAM Trucks!  

It was in 1994 when the first hot design for a RAM Truck made its debut - well at least I thought so. It was a design change from the previous models, and I was highly impressed. Back then, I was a little kid and dealing with an ever-increasing love for cars.
       Now how I came across the then new '94 Dodge Ram, was that I was reading a National Geographic magazine. My Dad was a big fan of  National Geographic and always read their magazines. Infact, I think he had a subscription to them. I remember how I'd loved seeing them when they arrived in the mail - nice, neat, crisp, and glossy, and with the bright  kids-lovable  yellow border. (Damn I'm going into it about National Geographic magazines lol). But anyway, moving along, there was a large fold-out in the center of the magazine, and there it was: this large beautiful Ram Truck. I can just picture myself back in time on that day, pouring over the images; I was in love with that truck! What I enjoyed about the design was how the front fascia was "truck-anized" it bore a strong resemblance to the front end of big trucks (think Mack Trucks) and school buses. You know, that aesthetic where the headlamps are on a much lower level than the hood. This new appearance implanted on the Dodge Ram pickup was interesting to me. I saw aggression and a grown man-type of expression. You see, little bloys always dream of being grown-a$$ hardworking men like their Dads(hahaha)

Ok, now enjoy the design analysis below

Arguably the best looking spyder ever!! Mclaren 12C Spyder!

OMG!!!! The Mclaren MP4-12C! What a stunning combination of beauty and technology. 

I love this side view of the Mclaren.What makes this picture pop are the huge air intakes! As I look at it I picture masses of air rushing into them. Do you hear "Swoosh?" This look achieves the appearance of a great sense of speed! Furthermore its the double air intake that makes the effect extreme. Masses of air piling into two air intakes. The car appears ready to rip out of its still position at terrifying speed! The beautiful roofline is also aiding in this picturesque definition of a powerful road beast. It's low, sleek, and slick-ingly aerodynamic. It looks soo wind-tunnel perfected.

Hear the screeching? Smell the burning rubber? Feel the excitement? The 12-C spider is well .................. Exactly!! Just speechless.

What I admire most about the Mclaren Spider is the way it takes me back in time. A time where I use to draw sports cars in this manner. The sweeping lines, low angular front end, and the tail sweep off the spoiler lip. Ummm ummm delicious!! 

Parting shot: Oh yes the Mclaren is indeed beautiful and powerful! But ahh it's no Lamborghini (lol) ahh or Ferrari for that matter (hahaha). But it's more than a Porsche! Right? Agree?
