    I only wish that GM would hire me for their think tanks because who they have in there now isn't doing much thinking, at least that is my opinion.....Now this vehicle, the SSR...if they , General Motors wanted to really sell to their 'intended"audience, that being 18-35 bracket then they should of done this...1...get the price down...you reduce it by providing nothing power as standard equipment...if you want it you buy it like options...so power nothing for the exeption of power door locks(keyless remotes), 2... have a 2.4 litre engine as standard or you can upgrade to the LS1 corvette engine for an additional amount..(if people want that type of engine, they will pay the extra).,..3rd make standard transmission the standard equipment and allow upgrade to a automatic at a optional price tag,.,,4th and final,...the MSRP with what i just described with a standard(equiped) transmission ...The price for the SSR needs to be in the price range of not to exceed $25,000 USD plus taxes.....General Motors, you , simply can not put a nostelgic vehicle on the market with a retail of $41000 USD and expect your'target audience" to come knocking on the dealership doors to purchase it.,Its no wonder you were getting the ages of 50-65 purchasing it(they are the only ones who could afford it going for your 41,000 plus options USD).... When you are at the particular age group of 18-thru 35 in the middle to later part of the age bracket are thinking somewhat long term...getting married , buying a house and starting a family.,... the last thing on the minds of your"targeted audience": is buying a "nostelgic car"....Now if you put the price down to an affordable price then you would of at minimum trippled your sales on this beauty....Anyway, thats my 2cents !..Peace!

    Omg, this is utter bull shit. The Aztek didnt contribute to Pontiac's demise. Pontaic was discontinued along with Olds, hummer, Saturn, etc following the bankruptcy. SsR was planned as limited production. Delorean was a POS and John was a crook. Gawd cant watch anymore.

    I like the SSR mini truck, its odd and unique, small enough for a girl like me
    I would love to have a red one.
    It reminds me of the Subaru Baja truck. Oh, how I am in love with the Subaru. I have been researching these truck since the first day they brought it out. Every time I see one, which is rear, ride down the street, my heart melt. Because I want one so badly.

    Triumph Stag. Only made 25,877 from 1970 to 1977 before the project died due to engine unreliability. Was a great car spoilt only by poor quality control at the factory and lack of response to the engine problems. Now that engine problems are understood and solvable it is powering ahead as one of the worlds most liked classic cars and has a very high survival rate. facebook.com/stagweber/photos/a.1097451427006478/1097451263673161/?type=1&theater

    Aztec failure: Reason It's design of its hull or shell was pretty much what killed the car. Performance I heard was fairly decent. Irony: The Majority of Cross overs, hybrids and modern SUV's all share the Aztecs features Aztec had the nose and tail been cleaned up likely would have fared well.

    Chevy SS: Reason for failure. Chevy literally got greedy and shoved all the tech into what was supposed to be a car to sell to youth in the late teens to young adults but didn't remember that wages for the modern day didn't fit modern prices (still doesn't) and that maybe making models in lesser versions probably would have been more attractable. . Design wise it was fine and personally i like its retro design.
    Had Chevy made various versions from a strip down basic model and of course its premium model I bet they would have made some decent sales. Irony: Ford made the Thunderbird which also didn't do that well but learned its lesson quick and the Modern Mustangs pretty much laughed its way to the bank.

    Delorean: Reason for failure: Electrical issues in the American model due to 1st generation issues was a pain, but the primary reason was the US desire to shove a fuel regulator which literally killed the car's performance everything else the video posted is correct. The European models were decent performing cars however. The Other reason was that car companies didn't like competition, and made efforts to kill it, The founder was acquitted of the drug charges especially as it turned out it was staged to get him in trouble in the first place. He simply chose the wrong time. Irony: The Delorean refuses to die into obscurity, the Back to the Future movies and fans managed to get the Delorean to continue to be built in limited old models to now being built as new productions and all existing models don't have the performance issues anymore . Seem's the car at least had the last laugh.

    The other cars appears to be true mistakes due the Mercedes cause no one was that stupid to buy what was essentially a oversized clone of another model.

    The Suzuki cause bad design and poor choices

    The Lincoln.. Really do I need to point out the obvious???

    The last one meh..

However they were great films and were a great advert for the car but production had stopped by then. MJ Fox was brilliant sorry to hear of his illness.
