      I don’t know why so many people dseipse these cars. They were excellent on gas reliable for the most part and had an brilliant fit and end. I want to find and buy one of these in excellent condition and then renovate it to show room condition.I like the bracing sharp lines that dominated car styles from the 1980 s. Then the 90 s came with their bubble shapped bloated looking cars and ruinned an entire decade. Just compare the 1989 Fancy Classic to the 1992 Fancy Classic as an example!

      What strikes me the most is that domtiesc corporate propaganda videos haven’t gotten any surpass in view of the fact that then. They all assume that the employee (aka Teammate in Firestone lingo for all you fellow BSRO types) is an idiot easily led by the Shiny Moving Pictures being showed.Ah, yes. Corporate America in the 21st Century. Our Goal Is To Become Too Huge To Fail.(If that sounds bitter, I’m sorry. It was meant to come across as a lament, not a rant)
