Beijing 2010: Mitsuoka Galue Convertible is all kinds of wrong

If ever there was proof that just because you can, it doesn't mean you should, it's Mitsuoka Motors. Case in point - the Mitsuoka Galue Convertible, which we've finally gotten to see in person here in Beijing. Sadly, we cannot un-see it. Why anyone would take a perfectly serviceable contemporary Mustang convertible and transform it into this is beyond us. Then again, this is the same company that created the Orochi.

The Galue 'vert's front end apes an older Bentley while the tail is lifted straight off a late-1990s Cadillac DeVille. It's all terribly wrong in so many ways. Just be happy that we've opted to spare you the sea monster-like Orochi, which was sitting on an adjacent turntable. It was so awful that the unfortunate model standing next to it collapsed from embarrassment.

That is terrible. Although I am surprised the 90s Deville tail lights fit on the Mustang body. The Chinese have zero design ability, mixing parts of 3 or 4 cars, especially ones that are totally different doesn't work. The front is just so bad, who on earth thought this up, and then actually thought it was a good idea to put it on display.

The Chinese can design cars just fine; it's just that many Chinese car companies are brand new, poorly funded, and have zero experience.

Mitsuoka, btw, is a Japanese company that has been doing this for years... for $h!s and giggles, I assume. Here's the Galue, a Nissan Fuga with a retro British front end:
