Look at these fairly recent and fabulous Ford concepts!
Marc Newson) is far cooler than anything Ford is manufacturing right now! How hard can it be to create a car of desire!? It was done all though the 40s, 50s, and 60s! 30 years of automotive bliss! Then the 70s hit us with a bricks of ugliness (which also leads me to the pitiful housing market of the last 40 or so years. The barely-meets-code-houses built these days are absolute hideous trash! I don't care how big they are or how many dormers they have, they are not worth money. Period!).
The 2005 Ford Interceptor Concept. Where in the world is this car!? Why is Ford not making this incredibly awesome car?
The 2010 Ford Start concept. This is a bread-box B-car of dreams! Designed by Freeman Thomas (Audi TT, New Bettle) this is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL grocery-getter I have ever seen! This car is so incredibly cool, that if Ford would manufacture it, it would ruin the rest of the automotive world, it would be so succesful. That Ford does not bring this to the people is a sure sign of incompetence! Dear Ford, make this car (not some ugly derivative) and I'll buy THREE of them, right away!
Now, must we compare the above to what Ford is currently manufacturing and bringing to the people? Shutter... sadly, we must, and I don't want to ruin this heaven;y post with what we are now going to see below. ...sigh.
