      I don't believe the scenario isn't real. And I totally agree with the point about the differences between each MFR and how they design said differences to different metrics/strategies/etc. There's...

      I here ya, but laws are only laws until somebody changes or eliminates them.

      I'm not saying the MFRs are pushing for change, but you never know what Wall Street pressures will do to executives and...

      No idea. I think the safe/sensible/obvious bet are more like increase material hybrid announcements.

      1) I think the bigger question is the short term future (i.e. next ~5 years) of gas prices in...

      Personally I think all of Sergio's rhetoric is to get more incentives from the state/city.

      It's not a requirement... per se. It's just that making things light has (4) methods:
      1) Make it smaller
      2) Make it out of lighter material.
      3) Make everything a lean/mass efficient as possible....

      Be careful.

      The results of some of these failures is shrapnel aimed at your face/head/neck. People have died because of it. And it seems more prone to happen in humid places due to the corrosion...

      I saw one similar to the OP's pics last night on the Southfield leaving Ford HQ. It had same rear end camo, but the front fascia had rigid camo that looked like is was masking features that projected...

      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......

      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...

      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...
