Nice patina.
I must admit that I prefer this kind of aesthetic over perfectly restored and polished cars that are used only on Sundays.

Ford Mustang

"Recruited by Ford out of high school in 1936, John Najjar was a machinist trainee when Henry Ford himself happened by and asked if he was happy with the job. When Najjar said he’d rather be drawing cars, he was assigned to the fledgling design department to work with pioneer Ford stylist E.T. "Bob" Gregorie and Henry’s son, Edsel Ford. Najjar rose to become Lincoln chief stylist in the mid-1950s and held a number of other high-level design jobs for Ford until he retired in 1979."

Ford Thunderbird

Across many North American indigenous cultures, the thunderbird carries many of the same characteristics. It is described as a large bird, capable of creating storms and thundering while it flies. Clouds are pulled together by its wingbeats, the sound of thunder made by its wings clapping, sheet lightning the light flashing from its eyes when it blinks, and individual lightning bolts made by the glowing snakes that it carries around with it. In masks, it is depicted as multi-colored, with two curling horns, and, often, teeth within its beak. (Wikipedia)
