I honestly don't think politics had one damned thing to do with the general collapse of the sedan market... I just think it was a drastic shift in mainstream automotive consumer trends and preferences.

I know it wasn't perfect by any means, but it still kills me that Chrysler FINALLY had a decently competitive compact sedan... at exactly the moment sedan sales cratered. (I have similar feelings about the Chrysler 200 of the same era)

Hell, with us getting the EU-market Focus again, and GMDAT's supremely adequate Cruze (including a hatch!) the domestic manufacturers all finally had non-embarrassing compact cars. Then the crossover movement finally reached its zenith and buried the sedan segment.

You know, there's the joke about "That'll buff out"... this guy buffed too hard.

I still think the world of Mosler and his ambitious approach to making off-beat, but quite fascinating, vehicles.

I still can't believe there was a time where Honda risked their entire build-quality/reliability reputation by putting their badge on a FUCKING DISCOVERY.

Honda had extremely consistent (and handsome) styling in the '80s... whether it was a Honda Today or an Acura NSX, there were those little styling tweaks and themes that permeated every car, and it was scalable and WORKED.

I'm quite fond of that styling... it's essentially a beefed-up, stretched-out version of the AE86 Trueno's styling... and that's not a bad thing.

They went EV-only in America... which might not have been a bad idea, if their EV tech/range weren't so laughably outdated.
