Isn't it time for The Maui News to bring its vehicle classified listings out of the 1960s?
Divisions for domestic and foreign cars are no longer realistic. In the Dec. 5 paper, domestic listings included a smart car convertible (made by Mercedes in Europe), a Mitz 3000GT (Mitsubishi from Japan) and a couple of Chryslers (now majority owned by Fiat of Italy). Foreign listings include a Saturn Sky, which was built by General Motors in the USA.
But many of the foreign listings were also built in the USA at plants owned by their overseas manufacturers. Does that make them foreign? They are not imported. Confusing, eh?
If cars must be divided into categories, how about simply two doors and four doors? Easy to tell the difference. And if further division is necessary, there are three doors and five doors, which are hatchbacks.
Come on into the 21st century, yeah?
