  1. That looks like a logical evolution of the Malibu into an EV. I actually like that and think they should build it.

    Fiesta Commercial

    Oh no! You said the word Cortina which may summon the Jellymould guy back to the forum!
  3. The A pillar of the truck extends all the way to the front most part of the truck where the most damage would occur in such an accident. It would cause a massive compromise on the cab, compounded by the excessive weight that an EV brings to the table. That's a lot of inertia for a weak roof frame to absorb.
  4. I feel that this could also lead to a slippery slope that when an automaker makes an improvement on a product, the courts can argue that that is an admission that the old one was defective. Court cases also have the power to set a precedent.
  5. And as they accept the award, Ford tells them there is a $20,000 market adjustment on it.

    2024 Mustang Info

    I agree. That was my first car. People have to keep the time period in mind. Compared to other compact fuel economy cars, it was pretty good looking. Mine was solid red with a tan interior. It was sloooooow! But I was a kid, and the fuel economy allowed me to put money in the bank.

    Ferrari Purosangue

    https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/13/business/ferrari-purosangue/index.html Good F&%*ing God, what in the ever living hell is this? The AMC Gremlin was used as inspiration I'm guessing.

    Ford Sales - August 2022

    Lee Iacocca had written about it in his first book. The dealers wanted more K cars and Omni/ Horizon /tc4Turismo/ Charger models, but Chrysler had a huge glut of cars like Codobra, Mirada, S.t Regis and other such automotive misfits. He said to the dealers, "We can't unmake them, so you have to sell them" Chrysler then came up with a rebate program and that annoying nationwide radio ad with the frogs saying, "rebate rebate" instead of ribbit ribbit.

  12. Most hood scoops aren't functional on gas cars either.
  13. This scene always pops into my head when I hear about corporate promises:

    Buick Wildcat Concept

    I'm surprised they even bothered with this. It is not a CUV and cars are Kryptonite to American car makers. This has zero chance of spawning a car or any such thing for the American market. It has a low probability of making a China market car with these styling features, but I'm not expecting that either.
