– Interesting early takes on the first generation VW Golf.
(We are so used to the round headlights, these square ones look really strange…)
– If the 1989 Cadillac Solitaire, or something close to it, had gone into production, Cadillac would be so far ahead of where they are now… Everything they have these days, 30 years later, looks at least 30 years older. How sad.
– Subaru XT. back when Subaru wanted their designs to stand out…

The original Golf shape was iconic and only minor details changed from this mockup. The headlights aren't what threw me (since the 1981-85 US Rabbit had squares).. but the pre-1973 bumpers certainly did. I think the production model looks much better.
The original Golf/Rabbit did have round headlights.
