What I want to drive is a British car that IS a British car.  If
BMW/Ford/ are going to design distinctive vehicles that LOOK and FEEL
like the classic British machines - even if they are somewhat updated, fine.
But, if all they intend to build is the typical Japanese-look sedan/sports 
car, then the car is a Jag or an MG in name only designed to sell to the
fashion conscious like Harley's.  I'm not interested.  Now, if they build
a relatively cheap, fast car like the Mini Cooper S, I'm in line.  But, I
won't part with $20,000 for one.
