Arrow The Ford 49's been Canned!!

What is wrong with these idiots!! Good product sells for shytes sake..

FORTY-NINE, FAIRLANE DEAD?
USA Today reports that Ford’s slumping finances have left no money to produce an updated Ford Fairlane and a roadgoing version of the concept Forty-Nine. The Fairlane, the paper reports, was to eventually replace the Crown Victoria. The cost pressures also mean it’s virtually certain that the Ford mid-engine supercar to be shown at next month’s Detroit auto show won’t be produced as well. While Ford is in its current product drought, analysts like John Casesa at Merrill Lynch are predicting that the competition will replace its products much more aggressively, which could place Ford in even a more difficult position.

Seriously though it makes you wonder. Would you rather be seen driving the 49 or the new Town Car. I'll take the 49 anyday..
