Dearborn fantasies

I did actually spot this as a fake when I saw the original magazine article, although not right away; what's bizarre is that I still want one.

Not that I expect Bill Ford to sign off on production plans, but I think they ought to build one for the show circuit, just to make people shriek.

Just when I thought I had your taste in cars figured out.

I keep seeing the Ford Fusion in places. Every time I think, "That's kind of snazzy" before I realize that it's that damn Fusion again.

I caught a glimpse of a Lincoln Zephyr this week, which is Ford's attempt at getting you to pay $32,000 for a version of their $22,000 sedan.

(Actually, of the triplets, I prefer the Mercury Milan — though if it's my money being spent, I'd just as soon have the Mazda6, which is the basis for all of them.)
