So if I own Ferrari, then I guess I can now claim a design that's been in their DNA and prestigious history mine now because I bought them years after what they've accomplished?
Doesn't make it right, I'm sure you'd be disappointed if you created your own signature design and have some company use it now all because they own a couple of shares, it's lazy and honestly..seems to American.
To build and show passion in your own work, your own imagination..but instead, pay off somebody else to do it, or buy out a company and say well hey, I own them..guess it's cool for me to plaster the Prancing horse from Ferrari on my cars now..
Differentiating yourself is the best thing a company can do, it speaks out..shows that you actually like your job.
While Ford does have certain cars built globally and domestically, it is blasphemy to have a flagship built outside of your country..
A flagship is a flagship for a reason, symbolizing your heritage, yes, Ford Fusion stole Aston's grille, which is hilarious..but it isn't a flagship..so while it's dumb and obvious they stole Aston's grille and didn't even try to make it different from Aston..it wasn't a flagship.
But when you have American icons, being design from people who weren't even born here, or have flagships being built outside of the U.S.
It isn't considered an American product, despite GM's bailout..at least they're learning what Values are, what it is to Actually build a car that represents where you grew up.
Ford's F-150 is only unique thing to me, and it's built here.
To say other wise, is blasphemy..and honestly there's millions who agree.
If you're a car guy, you'd understand..
FYI: nobody (well not nobody, majority
) of people don't wake up and say dang! I want a Toyota or Honda!
There affordable for the masses, especially for people who aren't passionate about cars and just want to get from point A to point B.
And I said Germans are laughing at our cars, I never said us as a nation..
