Really? Some of the things I am reading here are just downright laughable and plain inaccurate. Cartiabiano is far from the "chief" designer at both Toyota and Lexus. He's a senior designer for...

Not that it is of any use to me (do not even post often), but I want my username changed ASAP to "Carmaker1" for historical reasons, as it is well recognized elsewhere and should be no different here.
