What car started out good looking and then got worse as that generation reached extinction? Example:

1989, Hot to Trot supercharged XR7.

Smooth, clean, determined.

1997, hits the wall. No more leading roles. “5.0" for what that’s worth. Minus several ponies from the Mustang that gave it life.

Fussy. Add-ons for the sake of add-ons. Look at me chrome. But don’t look. It’s not attractive. And a front bumper that arrives a few moments before the grille and headlights get there.

What other car got uglier the longer it hung around?
