    In 10 years, American car manufacturers as we know them today, will cease to exist.

    I could imagine Ford Europe, which actually makes money being the only part of Ford truly left, as long as they keep on going in their current direction, I can say that it's a certainty. They have dropped the ball, they have to pick it up again before the Japanese / Koreans do.

    So it'll all be Tuckers, DeLoreans and Homers?

    More like Great Wall Motor Co., Visionary Vehicles and Chery (once they change their name due to GM's "sounds too much like Chevy" lawsuit)

    Man, I'm not Olga's biggest fan but that's just cruel... Wonder if she tans by moonlight?

    There's also that company with a vaguely Islamic sounding name.

    However, be happy LVMH isn't a Germanic company.[​IMG]

    Well, the project with Skoda would be a French:Bohemian collaboration...

    If my Berluti skin seat idea works out, the limited edition should be called Koch.

    Thanks for putting me off my dinner. You're a sick, sick kid.

    The carbonated Vichy water (St Yorre) tastes like brimstone. Ironic.

    LabelKing, I hope this is just a teenage phase. Not the camp, the Vergangenheits... flipness.

    As so many things in life are. Side note: Bentleys seem to sell far better than AM’s, at least in this part of the world, where I see at least 1 Bentley everyday, and barely 1 AM a week. Jon.

    I have seen a fair amount of Aston-Martins here.

    However, the highlight of my week was seeing this blood-red Mercedes-Benz early '60s Fintail sedan on the highway going at about 90. Of course, like many '60s cars, it had only the driver's side mirror, which I think is a nice look.

    I never use the passenger side mirror anyways.

    That's really safe.

    Jon, unless you were speaking on behalf of the Ford corporation that touchÃ[​IMG] was inappropriate. TouchÃ[​IMG] cannot be employed by a third person in a conversation. The phrase you were looking for is "Ooooh, burn!"

    TouchÃ[​IMG]!
