      I really doubt a company like Ford will "blow" something that is their Golden Goose (i.e. They've done their homework.). It'll have hiccups like anything else, but I think it will do well for them......

      I want to know the story behind how this jet sprint boat racing thing got started. How does that happen?

      Jim: "Hey, I'm tired of skiing."
      Bob: "Yeah. How about we dig channels that look like a...

      It might be a meaningless drop compared to the total budget expenditures, but to me... that is soooo not the point. To me... such a repayment is NOT for taxpayers per se, but to help continue to fix...

      Totally.

      In order to make such a trucklet even attractive (desirable, not aesthetically pleasing alone), it would need all manner of styling and content and bling and features... which would make...

      I think more people should make a big stink out of it. Hell, do a sit in down at the RenCen. Occupy TheTubes.

      I never cared for any of the bailouts (but for different reasons than most people),...

      Another thing...

      As crazy as a trucklet idea is... I just can't imagine them finding much ROI on a midsize truck either. Now THAT is in the realm of committed truck buyers.

      I totally agree that "committed truck buyers" are looking for a trucklet. The people who used to buy them back in the day are... I dare say... just looking for seriously CHEAP vehicle, but with...

      Without a doubt that profile helped the structural. The Ridgeline depended not only on the integrated ladder frame (which is thicker/layered sheet metal like you see in Jeep SUVs for example), but...

      For "$150+" dollars, I'll but (10) and suffer the recalls!

      One of the most interesting clues that says it could be a BOF is the lack of the gusset-like body profile in the teaser.

      And with respect to ladder frames or sheet steel bodies losing their stiffness...

      1) Nothing comes perfectly stiff from the factory.
      2) Nothing remains at its stiffness level from the factory.

      It's been years since I saw the restoration job. It was some TV show or whatnot and I honestly cannot remember even the car or show name, but what I do recall was some spot welding done because some...

      Well yeah. They must do that to the classics that are body on frame... since the body is a welded amalgamation of sheet components. That is... if they're deemed too loosey goosey. That's technical...

      Good point. That must mean Brenda should be seeking actually bodies soon... all camo'd.

      The packaging benefit of unibody is a great point! Honda is able to make those nooks and crannies because their ladder frame is integrated into the bottom floor pan. The BOF players find it harder to...

      1. I cannot believe this silhouette has gone this long without somebody finding/getting a spy pic of a prototype yet.
      2. Chances are high that it will remain unibody like emmett said. I would think...

      Oh, I fully appreciate how spoiled the 1st world consumer is, but there is a lack of... uhhh... common sense with some of these notions.
