Something I just realized about why I don't like the grills on Toyotas' or Lexuss'

Seems to me that they look like big vacuum cleaners. Sweeping up all the road garbage and it will just pile up into the car. Anyone else think this too?

1. Yep!

Some kinda' catfish or underwater creature that looks like doom - the Lexus especially - I get the feeling that there's some gang of drunk designers sitting somewhere laughing their ass off at selling those ideas to a front office (perhaps they're former Pontiac Aztec designers?)

2. Some other cars have those, too.

My adult sons, who are “car experts”, tell me it’s supposed to look sporty.

I agree with you, to me they look like a gaping mouth on a grouper.

3. You made me go to google images and look.

In my opinion, those cars are ugly. Ick.

6. Sort of a game for me.

Figuring out what car is creeping up on my in my rear view mirror. A "Can you guess what brand of car" game. Always good to know when you are trying to figure out their intentions. Like be real careful if it's a Hummer, you know.

10. I've started noticing this

One car looks like a catfish--just needs the moustache. Definitely bottom feeders, and seem to be contagious to other makes and models.

11. Blame the sensors

Auto-braking, lane keeping...

OT: My favorite car commercial is for the Lincoln Navigator. The commercial makes it sound like an expensive recliner or couch with built-in sound system.
