My first post here, even though I've been following this particular discussion since page 172.
I admit when I first saw the leaked image, I thought it was a cleverly done MOC, but I was puzzled: why the faces if you want to make pretend it's the next modular?!
Anyway, I like it and the official images look really good. There was a really good diner almost 2 years on lego ideas by pix027 (also with a nice(r) pink cadillac !) and I thought it was a pity that project was not approved. Maybe this is the reason why.
We're definitely seem to be moving up in time now. I would love to see this diner next to a 50s style garage/ pump station...
