if you think the domestic car market is the only place where retro is being marketed you're sorely mistaken.

nothing like improving upon lousy designs. last time I checked japanese manufacturers were known for reliability, domestic manufacturers were known for the fiero. If you want to actually hash out this retarded conversation start a thread.

the vw bug doesn't count, because they were still making the vw bug.

That's about it.
