Another case of not being able to tell shit form shineola. The new "Nomad" is a completely different car from the original, and except for the very basics of also being an automobile, is in no way related to the "classic design".

Actually, every single part was modified at least once during it's production run. Some of the changes were just so small only the hardcore know what they are.

I know there's one piece that never changed, but i can't remember what it is right now. It's some gasket or seal. . .

While I agree with you, I want to take a different tack and say that "design" is also properly applied to mere styling, where what you call design is also covered under "engineering." Therefore it can be correctly said that two cars share visual design but have different engineering and layout. This is coming from the use of it as laid out in #6 of the noun version of design in Merriam Webster: "the arrangement of elements or details in a product or work of art."

Those elements can indeed be styling elements.

To further confuse the issue, let's look at styling:

Main Entry: style
Function: transitive verb
Inflected Form(s): styled; styl·ing
1 : to call or designate by an identifying term
2 a : to give a particular style to b : to design, make, or arrange in accord with the prevailing mode

Function: noun
: the way in which something is styled.

At the same time, your use of "design" to identify both the look and engineering is accurate. Those of us who do design work for a living do refrain from calling the styling of a vehicle or machine the "design."

This is so the original poster can see where you and I are coming from whne we say the cars don't share designs, even if they share similarities in styling.
