yes, interesting points.  but i'm sure you do realize that alfa has pulled
out of the US market and that even appliance makers (by your definition)
audi and vw are not in too good a shape.  

if we compare ourselves to the russians or chinese we sure do have a lot
of cars to choose from, but if we compare ourselves to the japanese or
western europeans, our lack of taste (and the self righteousness that goes
along with it) has meant that more exciting cars never make it here.
