RE: "American car companies just don't get it"

I can see where you might tend to think so, but remember that car companies are in business to sell lots of cars, not just to please enthusiasts.

For "real driving" I'll take a Subaru WRX. But how much will I really be able to use it? I can promise you, I'll have a little smile (for old times sake) every time I get into the Marauder, and when I'm flaming down a dirt road (that you'd probably be afraid to drive a nice clean BMW on) with the sun roof opened and the stereo cranked, I'll be having lots of FUN!

Yes, a Mercury musclecar is 2002 is silly. So is a Cadillac (or Lincoln or Porsche) SUV. A Plymouth "hot rod" or the proposed Cad Vette? 4 door 6 passenger V10 4 wheel drive pickups?

Cars are social satire. Who "don't get it"?

PS: Lincoln makes the RWD 4dr sedan LS V6 with a 5spd

To each, their own.
