Tom Vanderbilt commends the old 240 in a parenthetical comment on his blog post about “car diapers”:

I often wonder why (most) cars actually lost their extruding bumpers to begin with (look at those big rubber bricks on old Volvos) — some push for imagined aerodynamicism on the part of car drivers I suppose.

Every day my gigantic rubber bumpers scrape a little more of the “Umbria Twilight Pearlesque” from the Infinity FXs  in my neighborhood. If people would just use those hideous Bumper Badgers, everything would be all right.
