Another 20 years and there will be no coupes, they will be all converted to fastbacks.

I'm not tweaked either way as far as body style representation, but I wouldn't mind seeing an update to the graphics, even if it's just swapping some different cars. Seems like those two fastbacks have been up there forever.

The anvil of reality.

Fastbacks - yes

I am partial to the Fastbacks having had 2 in the family at one time, but favor rotating the pictures to include other body styles.
