The cars of today are boring and over-priced. They lack the style that the older cars had. All that they want to do is make them as aerodynamic as possible. The older cars have lines and shapes and you could tell what year they were simply by looking at them. Plus, who wants to pay 20,000 dollars for something that was 12,000 dollars, or less, just a few years ago?

I will accept your Challenge.
I would like to define a few terms that you use in your initial statement and to ask some questions to clarify your statement.

Definition

Boring- adjective 1.dull; repetitious; uninteresting
Overpriced- verb (used with object), overpriced, overpricing.1.to price excessively high; set too high a price on.
Style- aparticularkind,sort,ortype,aswithreferencetoform,appearance,orcharacter:

Also refer to the time period that these cars that you are talking about came from, and certain things you state are irrelevant to your argument. Being able to tell the year a car was made does not make the car interesting, or not boring. Lacking a certain style does not make something uninteresting, because the car could be in a more modern style. Just because you prefer a certain style does not mean that modern cars lack their own style.

When you say "cars of today" what time period are you going arguing for?

I quite like the mk3 Focus, it's got some Aston Martin looks to the front.

Yes, because one person gets an idea and the others try to beat that idea instead of trying to come up with something original.

I have noticed that newer models look kind of similar to each other

Reasons for voting decision: Con got conduct points because Pro forfeited. Con got arguments points because Pro didn't answer Con's arguments in round 1. This was a downfall debate and wish that the two debaters would remake this debate and do it again because of whatever was going on Pro forfeited too many times. If you guys end up debating this again send me the website for it.
