design ridiculousness - Dormeyer "Dormey" Hand-mixer

I bought a handmixer at a stoop sale today for $2 because I couldn't leave it behind - the design is just too too crazy.  This is an old Dormeyer "Dormey" handmixer and the engine runs crazy strong.  I don't know what year it is from, but I'm guessing it came out in 1957-58.
It begs the question, in what way is it appropriate for a hand mixer to bear such a striking resemblance to a '57 BelAir? Bitchin!

It is like they combined the details of the grill with the headlight cowl.

Aw, man, and it's even the exact same paint color!!

Okay, so the Dormey looks a little more like a spaceship from behind.
