The thing that I always loved about the MD-80 was how far the wing was placed aft on the fuselage. I was thumbing through one of the commercial aviation mags the other day and happened on a pic of the new CRJ 900. Right away I thought, looks like a MD-80 with winglets...In other words, I love it!
Check this link to Bombardier and tell me what you think.

Hmm, I know what you mean. The MD-80 always looks so good because it is so narrow with its wings far back. The MD-80 really looks good in mostly white schemes like AS and the old QQ one. The MD90 was the apitomy of this, but there are very few of them around [sadly].
The CRJ900 isn't quite long enough, but its not bad. We need a long 717 or something, but I don't think that is too viable.
