Case in point. The new Ford Focus Coupe. Look at the image below. On the left, the bloated, 1980's-looking attempt from Ford Motor Corporation. On the right, the über-slick "Rest Of The World" version. Underneath it's ostensibly the same car. Why do we have to be stuck with this grotesque American thing? Why can't they just use the same version as the rest of the frickin' world?
You know what they say about turds. It doesn't matter how much you polish it - it's still a turd.
