    @carlisimo: The very first thing I went and did when I saw the "burned out reversing lamp" comment above mine was go check if the Chinese-spec Regal is equipped with a red rear fog on the left and a white reversing lamp on the right, in symetrically identical locations, which is the configuration in which you find only one reversing lamp in Europe. That is not the case on the Chinese Regal; it has dual reversing lamps, and one of them on the car shown is apparently defective.

    “The Chinese Love Buicks.” Reminds me of the old SNL Line “Germans love David Hasselhoff” Go figure. There is no accounting for taste. Come now. Be honest. Is that Regal really any less attractive than the camcords that people swoon over here in the states?

    It's a viral marketing video and had its 15 minutes of fame in China...last January.
