I certainly am. It's from the same school of design i.e. the wedge/stealth/facet style of 3D.

"Curves bad - pointy, edgy, sharp angles good"

This design became apparent in some forms around the mid 90s once the Stealth (fighter) bomber was used in anger during the first Gulf war, and celebrated for it's new profiles by the design world.

Read up on Industrial design trends and their origins, the archives are there if you do some digging. They may not look alike (the aztec and the nuda) but they certainly share design elements for obvious reasons.
