H & M Should Get Into The Car Business

The K Car: Beleive it or not, this series save Chrysler from bankruptcy in the 80's.

The K Car: Believe it or not, this atrocious series of cars saved Chrysler from bankruptcy in the 80's. How about revamping this gross thing?

If I read one more article about the Big  Stupid Three, (stupid = U.S. automakers),  I am going to barf. This is not the first time these companies have been squeezed to the point of doom. Hello, the 80’s. I’ve been asking everyone if they remember the K Car, developed during the oil crisis, which crippled the industry. No one seems to have any recollection. Having been accused on many occasions of dreaming things up, I found in Wikipedia (my newest obsession) that the K Car series, which rolled out in 1981, was attributed to saving Chrysler from bankruptcy. Over 3 million K Cars sold in the 80’s. Now, that we are back to square one, why not do what Hitler did and come up with a hip, new version of a Volkswagen. Or follow in the footsteps of Lee Iacocca, and create a groovy answer to the K Car or Minivan, both of which changed the auto industry. No, let’s do another Navigator, or a Range Rover, yikes. Oh, by the way, throwing around the term “Hyrbid” is not the only scam that will save you.

Might  I suggest The I MEAN…WHAT Series of vehicles? A series of cars that reflects your lifestlye, so that on the road, you can spot a certain type of person by the car they drive, which tells alot about the driver. For instance:

  • The Single Gay Car (easy lay)
  • The Newly Married Gay Car (boring, keep your eyes on the road)
  • The Jewish American Princess Car (oh, right, we have plenty of those already, moving on)
  • Divorced Dad Car (horny and willing to spend money)
  • Cougar Woman Car (total easy lay)
  • Newly Divorced Mother Car (easy lay between hyper-kid’s activities only)
  • Time Clock Is Ticking Single Girl Car (way too easy lay, no condoms allowed)
  • I Voted For Obama Car (they’ll sell a shit-loads of those)

Or, for the fashion victims (you know who you are) the H & M Cars, which would be an extension of their already mega-successful limited-edition, designer duds program.

  • The bizzy print Matthew Williamson Car
  • The Leopard Cavalli Hot Rod Number
  • The Madonna Car (runs on wind, no radio but pre-loaded will only her music)
  • The Stella McCartney (all natural fiber interior, complete with “I Hate Heather” bumper sticker)
  • The Viktor and Rolf (topped with an asymmetrical quirky car cover so its easy to find in a mall parking lot)
  • The Comme des Garcons (a black and white polka dot car with hot pink and black stripe interior)

Which car would you want to buy?

    My mom had one. The Dodge 400. When I got my license, the dealership tried to sell me on a K car, too. I said no thanks!

  2. good point. maybe H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB (HBA) can help save them… you'd think (chrysler) would do it right after the last mess…
