What are old people going to drive now? The Mercury Marquis is finished. No more after this year. In fact, no more Mercury period. Now, Fords will only have Ford badges and will quit competing with themselves. Maybe Ford got therapy and was cured of multiple personality disorder.
Or maybe they went to business school and learned you compete with your competitors, not yourself. Or economics school where they learned it costs more to make the same car in two different plants with two different badges. Or, well you get the idea.
But seriously, how will I know to change lanes when I come to a stop light now?
