Considering in pop culture 2013 feels like long time ago and 2008 is like eons away? The reason is cities in Europe are banning all kinds of cars. I don't want to ever buy a post-2014 model year car as I find new cars really disgustingly ugly. But it's like late 2000s and early 2010s cars are underrated. I think 2008-2014 was a high era not only in pop music but also the peak of car styling and design.

Most of my cars are from the 60's-80's. So, no. I don't miss 'em.

Iím guessing those were years you grew up in like in your teens to early 20s. We all wax nostalgic about those years in our lives. For me those years were the 80s. I still look back fondly on the cars and music of those years but not so much that I donít realize many of those cars were actually polished turds and at least half of the music was pure garbage. It was in the 90s that cars began being designed in wind tunnels and began to develop those jelly bean looks. The years you listed were when the designers and engineers began finding ways to work more aerodynamics into the body while adding more individual styling than the past two decades. Designers had greater freedom prior to environmental and safety regulations. Some of those models were works of are while others were a brick on wheels.

Umm...

Since I drive a 2009 and a 2003 car, not really. I just look outside the front window and there they are.

Yes, since most of these cars are still on the road, it's hard to miss them. Moreso when the drivers are texting.

Actually I was in my early to mid 20's (1988 born) but close. Most of the late 90s/early 2000s cars didn't age as well imo as the ones made in the second half of the 2000s and first half of the 2010s. At least here in Europe I liked how LEDs were more discreet. Now LEDs are huge and everywhere and I think they cause glare. Even LED street lights cause distracting glare imo while causing less light polution above them. But driving on a LED lit street is not nice.

My mom has a 2008 CTS w/31K miles, so I don't have to miss them.
She has to go to the eye doctor next Monday, so I get to drive it.

I don't miss them because they haven't gone anywhere.

Wow..You must have been like 12 in the late 2000s and in your late teens by the early 2010s considering how you feel like the era between 2008-2014 was ages ago..Today’s automobiles are based off vehicle designs from those years by the way I think cars from that era started becoming ugly, I miss designs from the 90s and very early 2000s
