      Dan, I don't see the Q&A module. Missing?

      Chevy and Ford need to stop adding horse power to the ZL1 and the GT500. What should they do to improve these cars; instead of adding stupid amounts of horse power?

      With Porsche delaying their version of the VW Bluesport Concept and VW’s Bluesport and Audi’s R4 production models seemingly being put on the "back-burner", does this create an opportunity for another automaker to market a lower-priced, two-seat, mid-engine sports car? I remember the "idea" of the Pontiac Fiero was then and is now still sound, it was crap execution and "Play School" plastic interiors that made it a failure.

      I'll just stick a question here since the QA module is absent: What do you guys think about the idea of many Barrett-Jackson cars going from stage straight into storage? I heard a guy on TV bragging about how the car he bought is museum quality. To me, associating museum with a car is like associating an aquarium with a jumbo jet. What do you think? PS - I recently visited the California Automobile Museum in Sacramento. Most of those cars are drivers and on loan - which is cool.

      With the new Dart coming out and replacing the Caliber, what does this mean for the Patriot and Compass that currently share the Belvidere production plant with the Caliber? Will those Jeeps be moving to the same new Fiat platform as the Dart, or will their production be moved elsewhere?

      The Chevrolet Cruze does not have a spare tire. Does nobody else think this is a problem?? I have no idea when a can of goo and a patch kit became sufficient to fix/replace a tire. Is this something we will see in the future now because it saves weight??

        The spare tire is optional if you have the ECO with the automatic transmission, I think it's included with the other trim levels. The hyundai elantra does not have a spare tire either, so it is becoming a bit of a trend.

      What is the panels thought on the Ford Vs. Chevy Trash talking that is occurring between the ZL-1 and the GT500? Is this a good advertising move or is it a dated concept?

      A while back the Audi Quattro concept was released and shortly afterwards it was approved for production. But where has it gone? Have you guys got any word on its progress?

      The Falcon platform is getting old and will probably go away after 2016. The Mustang platform is getting a major redesign and IRS in time for its 50th Anniversary. Do you think Lincoln will either go "American Audi" with the next-gen Taurus platform or go "Cadillac Hunter" with the next-gen Mustang platform. Will the Australian Falcon follow Lincoln’s lead?
