All those German cars and none that I like the styling. I don't know what it is about German styling but almost all of their cars make me want to look the other way, Opel is the exception I can think of right now.

Being GM-owned, Opel designers enjoyed less freedom than the other German manufacturers. I enjoyed my Opel GT partly because it wasn't spartan in styling. The trade-off was Opel's spartan technology, since the smaller ones were using out-dated transverse leafspring front suspension and engines which were simpler than their competition were using
Was the early 70s Mercury Capri a German car? If so then that is another exception since I really like the looks of those.

Yes, it was. German Fords were one of the first World Cars, being that certain components were shared between all markets, not forgetting that the Pintos and Mustang IIs came standard with Capri engines.
Opels were also, to a tiny extent, because the Opel Diplomat was offered with a Chevy Smallblock
