Put some chrome bumper trim on it and that version of the T-Bird would have sold like hotcakes.

Well, there WAS a Fierro, and several Geo Metros that looked good enough that I would have driven them...

I am SO starting that thread!

I totally agree and think it would even sell now. Especially since now you can't tell cars apart till you see the badges.
