I've seen a number of modern MINI's with those Actual Size stickers and it sort of amuses me because they aren't actually that small relatively speaking.

My 2006 JCW seems rather large next to my 1986 Saab 900 for instance.

The modern car has grown bigger and bulkier due to a number of reasons.

The contrast can be somewhat startling.

So here are some pix of classics being dwarfed by moderns.

Mazda RX7


Kook at how small the original RX7 looks next to the last gen RX7.
Looks at pics.
Um...the last RX7 almost just looks like a widebody version of the original.....

Porsche 904

Photoshop or perspective? 904 was about 10" narrower, 10" less height, and 10" shorter length.

May be perspective?

Hard to find a pic of a 904 in the streets next to more modern stuff.

Damn!
What a beautiful car.




btw

The video with Walter Röhrl driving one is pretty fantastic and fun viewing:

That crooked sticker would drive an OCD guy like me insane, therefore, the entire window must be immediately removed via baseball bat... :laugh:
This. A sledge hammer might work too.

good point but those Rolls are big cars compared to modern pickups and SUVs even.

Yeah, about the same length/width as a Suburban.
