Re: Fisher Body "The Bodybuilders"
The public used to pick an auto that appealed to them which was based upon style. There was a time when all kinds of stylistic difference were used to attract buyers. In those times, an automobile was not so commodified.
Enter the Japanese who were all about efficiency. Over the last 7 decades the whole buying proposition has been transformed because price and cost of ownership has trumped style. Unless you want a specialty vehicle, you settle for a jelly bean.
I donít like being manipulated!
