The Return of Studebaker?

The Return of Studebaker?

It almost seems like it can’t be true or it is some sort of joke, especially in these economic times, but it is true, the Studebaker name is trying to make a comeback.

The 2013 Ford Fusion or Aston Martin?

The 2013 Ford Fusion or Aston Martin?

In case you haven’t seen it yet, Ford has been showing off it’s great looking 2013 Ford Fusion, but is it really a new look?
