Does this car exist (it almost makes sense, car being from ND) or is this
guy doing some badge engineering?

  Yes it does exist. If anyone remembers the ad in Motor Trend back 
in the '80s, It read  "Laugh all the way through the bank" as it showed
one of these "ultimate 4 wheel drives" blasting through a huge snow
bank roughly 6 feet high. Ok, sure whatever. Then in the back of the 
mag, it had tested this model and its 0-60 was the slowest during this
era at 13.6 seconds if I recall correctly. My god! And some of you think
your 4kq are slow? They look like rockets compared to this Tempo!
