      The cynic in me is inclined to believe that these days, one might be paying more money only for the name, as opposed to an "all the luxury car you need" which the Genesis seems to fit pretty well....

      To have some perspective:

      - GM built the downsized B-Body from 1977 to 1996, with a major restyle in 1991.
      - Ford built the Panther cars from 1979 to 2011, with major restyles in 1992 and 1998....

      Ford's problem in the 50s was that it didn't really know what to do with Mercury and Lincoln, and this left them short while GM was racing ahead with its genial brand strategy of a clearly defined...

      That's what I meant - the demise of the RB and SR motors was the end of an era for Nissan.

      Notice the Galant Sigma Royal has a similar type of velour interior to the Debonair. Mitsubishi didn't skimp on luxury but neither did any other Japanese manufacturer for the home market.

      Brazilian football has been on the slide for years but they trade off past reputation. A bit like how we all go on about how Mercedes-Benz and BMW don't build cars like they used to, it's the same...

      The Galant Sigma in Royal form. The 2.0 Royal and turbo versions had independent rear suspension:

      Toyota introduced the M-Series straight-six in 1965, which served Toyota until the early 90s. The first Nissan L motor also came out that year.

      The Lambda in Japan had independent rear suspension on later upscale models, as well as the turbo option. It was also one of the very few two-door coupes anywhere (save for the US market W123 Benzes)...

      The ones I have pictured here are the later 80s models. The 2.6-litre models that came in 1976 can be identified by the "2600" on the front grille, but later models replaced that with "MMC". The JDM...

      And 20 years later, in 1984, BMW and Nissan had the hottest six-cylinder sedans out there - and though Nissan by then was starting to use V6s (the L was replaced by the RB straight-six and VG V6),...

      Indeed but they as much looked to Europe as the USA for inspiration. But it is quite remarkable that Prince got in the act four years before BMW did in terms of a sporty six-cylinder sedan.

      Prince Motors made its first sedan in 1952 - three years before Toyota made its first Crown. Before then, its predecessor Tama experimented with electric cars. Subaru's first attempt at a car, the...

      Luis Suarez is one of the most despicable people to ever play the game. He has no shame in his actions and soils the game by his presence at the moment. Good that FIFA threw the book at him.

      And for all that, a Mk3 or Mk4 Jetta with the same motor would likely handle better due to better weight distribution. It's even been said about the Mk2 Jetta in GT (that was the European...
