Bill Ford Stepped down

Heard on the news that Bill Ford stepped down as CEO and handed over reigns to the guy that turned around the Beoeng company, hopefully he does the same for Ford.

Hopefully, the guy will give Ford its life back. Because, lets face it, most ford vehicles are quite the snorefest (either mechanicall or aesthetically), sure the new Fusion looks great, but the only model with serious power is only mated to a slushbox?! Anyway, Im choosing a positive outlook, maybe we'll see some of those nice Euro foci coming our way! Go MkII!

I knew it... anyway, back to the thread. Maybe they revive SVT? That would make me quite happy... seeing as how I couldnt afford the first ones... maybe I'll get a new one the second time around...

That would be cool, but I have a feeling that If they revived the SVT, it would be a sedan. This is probably the reason that the ST is a sedan. I see way more LX's around here than ZX4's, ZX3's, and ZX5's (I know the ZX4 is a sedan, but they're still pretty rare around here). I suppose the idea of a SVT sedan wouldn't be all too terrible, but I'd still rather have 3-door SVT (and this time, SVT had better have their SVTF supercharged).
