    I suspect a 100% US car would be just as competitive now as it was in 1991 when I bought my 100% US-built Saturn SL2 (well, actually 95%, with a few parts from Canada and a Japanese stereo). The...

    Carl, you raise some good points. And it's certainly worth remembering that Japan was once a purveyor of mostly cheap crap.

    You say that we should speak in terms of the company and not the...

    I still think it's turbulence from that enormous hood ornament. LOL

    Nah, a completely restored Z is going to be too pretty and perfect for daily use. The best DD, IMO, is a car that looks pretty good (but not perfect), maybe has a scratch or a ding or four, but is...
