The new Mustang looks great, but the Five Hundred is heading straight to the rental counters. The Five Hundred may be a nice car, but they managed to actually make a car that looked duller than the Taurus.

I just went through the Ford dealership a few minutes ago. They have no Mustang GT's available.

I've been trying to get a hold on a Chrysler 300 SRT-8 but they are impossible to find. There are some on ebay for $65K+. Gads!

My buddy that has a Hummer dealership has already pre-sold 50 Hummer H3's at full sticker price. They are selling like crazy.

The New Ford Five-hundred(what's up with this name anyway?), looks like a carbon copy of the Toyota Camry. Also is totally bland in styling and boring to look at it. One needs a quart of whiskey to spend money on that type of car.

OTOH GM is no better; the new Pontiac G6, the Ma xx, still have rear drum brakes, a rear solid axle and overall "50's technology.
Their trucks are at the bottom end when compared to the competition(check any car/truck magazine)

GM and Ford relied on their market power for many decades(obviously for good reasons), following the mantra "if ain't broke don't fix it".
That's a very slippery slope, for which it shows that they do not have a future program/plan.

As a last resort for their short comings on the North American continent, both companies rushed into rebadging European made cars with American names trying to revive their sluggish sales in the US.
As one can see they failed...

OTOH DC got the smarts and came out with a vengeance. Hot new models like the 300C, Magnum, Charger, Viper powered Trucks, SRT 4,6,8 Models, they are flying of the showrooms.
I see young kids buying the 300C because the cars are looking "cool". The DUB guys are snapping the new R/T Chargers Hemi, you wouldn't believe it!

How do i know it?...I work for a DC Dealer!

American car makers DONT GET IT. For the most part, their cars are NOT stylish looking. When I see 18-45 year olds driving, a strong majority of the time they are in a Honda, Toyota, Nissan or Hyundai. Rock solid cars with excellent style.
