China's oldest car company rolled out its first vehicle on Aug. 1, 1958; it was a chrome-lined black sedan designed -- like the pastiche of 1950s cars it resembled, including the Packard-esque Chaika -- to strike equal amounts of fear and inspiration into the revolutionaries.

I just can’t imagine anything without wings and a jet engine being worth this much.

Are they joking?

You can buy a Rolls for $400k that is more reliable, more powerful and looks far better than this butt ugly beast (inside and out).

It carries the upright slab-sidedness of not only its styling homage, the famous CA770, but also to various Kenmore products...

LOLOL...Only an author named "Blake Z. Rong" could turn a phrase like that. Except maybe Steyn.

Easily. You could even spend a few thousand on an old early 60s Lincoln that would have more style and reliability.

I had an opportunity to drive different Chinese cars dating back to 1980s and I can say that the quality is improving really fast. Just 10 years ago they were junks and now many domestic makers offers a late 1990s huyndai quality. Give them another decade to outclass GM.

The sooner the better.

Gubmint Motors is irreparably tainted by the illegality of the way in which its bankruptcy was handled. It needs to fail, and damn whomever suffers!
