When I special order a new car, I want to choose only the items I want and
pay only for those items I want.
Say, I want sports suspension. Why should I be forced to get those 21 inch
wheels with 1 inch greaser tires when all I want is heavy duty shocks and
springs? Suppose I want the racing stripes; why do I have to pay for the
super deluxe leather upolstery too? It makes no sense to force a customer
to buy thousand dollar options to get a heavy duty battery that would add
all of $20 to the car.
In the old days, customers could do just that: order every option
a-la-carte and just pay for those things only. My daddy did it and I
expect to get the same treatment from GM, Ford, and Chrysler (GM if they're
still around next year). Customers are revolting against ripoffs. We all
know the companies price they basic model cheap for advertising a bargain.
But, when you go to build a realistic car, every extra item you want is in
a different high cost package. I, for one, rebel against this unChristian,
unJewish, proMoslem attitude by the car makers.
Car makers govern the assembly of cars by computer. Its easier than ever
to build a car a-la-carte, so there's no excuse for them not doing it my
way. Its my way or the highway, bub.
