Tuesday trivia. Last week's question: My Dad has owned French, German, Italian, as well as 5 different American manufacturer's products, yet has used the same brand key fob for all. What did dear ol' Dad drive? Anwer: Jeep. Produced by Ford, Bantam, Willys, AMC and Chrysler. AMC and Jeep were bought out by Renault, then Chrysler. Chrysler and Jeep sold out to Daimler Benz, then an investment firm ( oh, make that 6 American companies! ) then to FIAT. This is beside the fact that Jeep has been produced in many other countries including Beijing, Iran, Egypt, India, and the Netherlands just to name a few.

Wow!! I only had identified 4! It is interesting to see the " rebirth " of 4 bangers in large sedans, especially in the E class and 7 series.  I wonder what the take rates are? Meanwhile, GM has put the minuscule 1.4, four cylinder turbo ( 148 hp, 216 ft/lbs ) in many of their large offerings.  For comparison, The 230, 250 I6 produced between 140-155 hp, an average 1968 Chevelle tipped the scales above 3100 pounds. Today's Impala runs the scale to 3600 - 3800 pounds and is available with the 1.4 .  Hummmm.
