"30 seconds is hardly a fair amount of time to judge the handling characteristics of any car. One car recognizes that reality." That's why Mercury made a 20-page brochure explaining the suspension of their Tempo clone. We're sure millions dialed up 1-800-MERCFAX so they could read about mysterious features such as front-wheel-drive and independent rear suspension. Hmmm... when's the last time you saw a Topaz?
AHA! So that's how Americans were fooled into thinking FWD was the future.
I remember when I was a little Steve Irwin running around Oz in the 80's, my dad told me about these 'front wheel drive' cars like the Mini and these new little Mazda's called 323. He said they only make em' small. Then my uncle pointed out the Cadillac Fleetwood down the street. Makes the mind boggle.
Wow, you're a big boy. Are you a bear?
