I love this thing. Anyone else see Miura cues in it? That's probably why I like it.

Think this is the first Ford I've ever liked that wasn't made in the 60s.

As I mentioned above, no sales tax is what should happen when it is a straight lease - so that's good. (Of course, you are effectively paying the sales tax either way - the cost is just built into...

I already discussed above why it is utterly irrelevant whether GM generates $9.7 billion of tax revenue in the future. To claim it is a wash if GM pays as much in tax as was lost by taxpayers in the...
