Years ago I read an article in a financial magazine (probably in some 
waiting room) that said that the financial might of the United States is
built on the foundation of the $300 car.  Because a running car can be 
had for $300, anyone can go to where the jobs are and live in affordable 
housing within commuting distance of their job.  The article went on to 
say that many countries had tried, but couldn't find a way to manufacture 
any form of transportation, public or otherwise, that had such a low per-
person cost.

So do your part for the continued financial strength of the United States 
and BUY THESE CARS!  Besides, I knew someone who owned one and it was 
almost as cute as an MG 1100.
