I wonder when car builders are going to notice the trend with "retro" vehicles. With "retro" vehicles, sales are hot at the beginning but that's about it.

Beetle sales are tanking.
PT Cruiser sales are tanking.
T-Bird is being discontinued.

Can't an engineer come up their own design? Atleast it's better then the new GTO that is a sad excuse for a revived muscle car

They made alot of money in the beginning on all those cars though.

I seen cases on all three of those models where people were paying much higher than the original sticker price just to be the first on the block!

It's being advertised as a truck. If it's a truck, it should have towing ability. This one has very little. All the car magazines are dissapointed with it. Slow, heavy, doesn't handle well compared to some very basic cars on the market.

Looks like each dealer is going to only get so many of these...not many. I called several stores trying to find one and sounded like those that were being built were already sold.
