65 mpg? Not In The U.S.

First I've heard of this kinda new Ford sedan that gets 65 miles to the gallon. Ford doesn't think it could make enough money to sell the cars here. Isn't that something?

It's a principle known as deliberate incompetence. No bank or corporation deserves welfare funds. They know what they're doing and why they're doing it.

It's diesel. Americans had a bad experience with diesel once. Come on, don't lie, you're old enough to remember that boxy little VW Rabbit that belched black smoke and got 45mpg's back in freaking 1980.

Oh how we laughed at the suckers who bought that tiny cube just at the beginning of the Reagan era of trickle-down wealth and freedom.
Hell, if we'd'a wanted tiny crappy cars we'd'a kept buying Ford Pintos. Now there was a solid American built car for the ages.

Yep, and what's wrong with those? I used to own a Volkswagon Rabbit Diesel back then. One of the neatest cars I ever had. Only got rid of it maybe 10 years ago because it got smashed while parked one day.

Oh, I don't ever remember black smoke coming from that car.

Fred, If you are going to continue to greenlight my comments you must upgrade your sarcasm detector.

But seriously, if you owned one you experienced the laughter. Carter was gone, Reagan was elected, our long national nightmare was over. Lee Iacocca introduced us to the K-car, a stallion of american engineering, no longer were we captive to the Japanese and the Germans with their tiny automobiles and their raw fish and sausages. Soon we would be driving Explorers and Tahoes and investing in Wall Street like god expected.
