2012 Fiat 500: Doing Retro Look Best?

The other day as I was tooling around in our 2012 Fiat 500, a 2002 Ford Thunderbird with a hardtop pulled out in front of me. I know it's not a popular car with the "cool kids" but I remember when it first came out and how I liked its nod to the first generation of the 'Bird. Naturally that got me thinking about our Fiat's retro look, which I think is a nicely done reinterpretation of the classic. Not as diminutive as the original but you can still see the classic cues in its headlights and sleek, simple style.

But which retro look do you think paid homage to its predecessor the best?
