What's the difference between retro and "flashback"?

Not bein a dikhed, it just seems like the same thing to me.

<span style='font-family:tahoma'><span style='color:green'>That's because, technically, it is the same thing. The Challenger bears a much stronger resemblance to the classic pony car designs of the sixties than any previous model "rebirths"... so I used what I felt was a stronger adjective, that's all.</span></span>

If you wanted a stronger adjective than "retro" or "flashback" you should've used "Smash-like". :ph34r:

I would actually equate it to this:
Flashback - within recent memory with little or no change.
Retro - older style with improvements to original design.

Bugatti Veyron > all.

Watch the "Top Gear" episode. You know it to be true.

Well we weren't including supercars were we?

I've seen that new Bugatti in action and it's pretty cool.

Stepping into that range I'll go for style over function and say TVR Sagaris. Not as fast as the bigger balled Ferraris and what not but the best looking car around IMO.
