Pattern recognition: Juke is the New Saab

I have to admit, I'm more than a little enamored of the new Nissan Juke.  It's gutsy, like a little rally car:

Jke-04-1280

I'm infatuated, even. 

And then it dawned one me: the Juke is but a modern take on the venerable, hallowed Saab 96:

Do you see what I'm talking about?  Both share that iconic Saab reverse swoosh…

… as well as a big-eyed face only a mother could love:

Saab96-1

Automotive reincarnation.  It's a Good Thing.
