Re: [DMCForum]

Minor correction: The AMC Eagle was the first Sport Utility Wagon
(about five years ahead of Subaru).

The Pacer was the first Neon -- a car designed from the inside out.
BTW: The lead Neon designer worked on the Pacer project. Notice the
engineering semblance.

The first minivan was of course the 1955 VW bus (built on a Bug I beam
-- believe it or not split window buses and VW Bugs have the exact
same wheelbase).

Hey -- wait a minute: scratch my previous comment. The most
commendable corporation this fine nation of ours has ever produced is
American Motors. What was I thinking....

(In actuality, Ford Motor Company should not exist today. The company
surely went bankrupt several times in its history, but accounting was
pretty much non-existent so nobody knew the difference).
