Poll of the Week! No more Fords...

Okay, this one isn't a true poll, but I'm going with it.

The story: For some imaginary reason all Ford automobiles have been banned, and the ones that are out in the world were all recalled and destroyed. There is no way to own or buy a Ford Motor Company product. At all.

Now that that's set, what are two cars you would buy as replacements?


THE RULES
  • Two cars, maximum.
  • There is a price limit of $110,000.
  • You must be able to walk into a dealership and buy this car, brand new, today. That means it must be a 2014 model. And it can not be a Ford product.
  • I will make exceptions for 2013 models, but only if the car was discontinued and no successor was announced. For example:The Acura ZDX was discontinued at the end of last year, but I'm sure some Acura dealerships still have a few. But as you can tell, this is a small set of 2013's allowed.
Hopefully that's enough for people to follow the rules. Have fun!


Remember, two cars, must be 2014 models, must not be any Ford product, and the cars cannot cost more than $110,000 each. Pictures are recommended.

+1 or a 2014 A8 for 99.445k w/ the $6300 Bang & Olufsen sound system that probably sounds awesome but can't bend the front door's sheet metal or make the trunk buckle when when the volume is turned up. But this would do nicely & there goes my house down payment, retirement fund, emergency fund, and mad hat money fund and it would suck to to have change my name to the BkA8man. Then again, probably over 70% of Audi A8's are black from what I have observed.

I'd prefer the Toyota version, but we don't get it here, so the Scion FR-S. RWD roadster.



Accord Sport, probably with the 6MT.
