The automotive landscape in Iran looks like this: Paykan, Paykan, Paykan. Iran wants to force the end of production of the fuel-guzzling, high-polluting Paykan. Iran hopes to clean up Tehran by getting rid of 1.4 million of the cars that have been in production since 1967. The Payan gets 13.8 miles per gallon and doesn't have a great service record. And you have to love the recycled jokes about the cars: Q. Why don't Paykans sustain much damage in a front-end collision? A. The tow truck takes most of the impact.
