Yeah and those little transit vans are everywhere. I probably wouldn't ever buy one, but it's kind of sad to see them discontinuing all their non-mustang cars.

Meh, I just don't fit in a Ford. I mean I hate mustangs, and all the Fords I've ever driven haven't felt right for whatever reason so it's no big loss for me.

it's insane how much less advertising ford puts out compared to chevy but i guess when you created the F150 it doesn't really matter; everyone just buys your truck

I swear I see Ford truck ads all the time, though it may just be that Denis Leary is that loving annoying.

I almost cried when I gave up my lovely '98 Chevy Lumina due to first car filters, and I loving hate Chevys these days. The only good thing I will ever say about a Chevy is that they hold their ground in snow, and I never, ever spun that fucker out.

i definitely see those, but compared to RAM and Chevy I don't see them as much - not to mention they have made seemingly the same exact commercials for 20 years so they just kind of blend together imo. in Texas we get a lot of Tundra commercials, but a lot of that might be tied to Tundra's being (partially) manufactured/assembled in this state.

I worked with someone who literally called Toyotas "tojo cars" a few years ago.

DO YOU HEAR THAT? THAT'S THE SOUND OF ME PATTING MYSELF ON THE BACK.

Global economy makes cars a mishmash.

The Honda Civic Type-R is only assembled in Great Britan and it uses engines assembled in Ohio.

The Ford Focus RS was made in Germany.

Most Subarus are made in Indiana.

Yeah, like the Outbacks are built in the US but the Forrester comes from Japan.

I remember the incredible awkward silence that hung in the air after hearing someone suggest a Mercedes to a Jewish friend.

They used to call me tricky-kid, I lived the life they wish they did.

American cars are ugly as poo poo. The recent trend of huge body and tiny loving windows drives me crazy.

Get used to it. It is driven by rollover protection and now that you have all these sensors, it doesn't matter if the C pillar is the size of a whole person.

I can't see for poo poo out of any car in my whole extended family.

For some reason lately I have a hair up my rear end to get some car from the 70's. Sure they were ugly, but they had an ugly style.

Yeah once I really noticed and thought about it I figured it was a safety thing. The first cars that made me realize this were the Chrysler 300 and literally every Dodge.

Bigger pillars for rollover and higher belt line for side impacts

Smaller windows makes for a more difficult extrication, though. I was in the back of a two-door rental car where there was no way you could smash the windows and I donít even want to know how long it would take to cut that pillar.

E:i mean, also the idea of having less doors than rows of seats is just goddamn insane to me. gently caress two-doors.
