    I don't get it. What am I missing? It's a Lorinser Mercedes. Is the thing in the middle of the grill red? Is it for sale only in the UK? Is this another of Farago's jokes intended to demonstrate how out of touch septuagenarian car writers are?

    That car is ready for a red nose. HEY! Maybe the good old USA can have a "Red Nose" day too! Everybody that owns an E85 capable car can go find an E85 pump and fill-er-up. The participating station will give you a big foam adhesive red "nose" for your car to signify that the ECM is now "drunk" on ethanol (don't worry, a few tanks of E10 will sober your vehicle up). This new "Red Ball" will be courtesy of ADM (instead of Atlantic Richfield).

    Pfuiiiiiiit! Over my head.

  • This is the ugliest car I have ever seen. Worse than an Aztek or the European 1996 Ford Scorpio. Hope that nobody in my hown town ever buys this...
