My little car (Acclaim) should get good gas mileage, but the Ex over-hauled it and it hasn't worked right since.So Daddy gave me the Crosley to drive to college. Now if I could just get it put together!Shirlee

Fred, my opinion is that there'll always be a market for Crosley-sized cars. Even Pontiac will introduce one next year for its swan song. There's also the Smart ForTwo, the Aveo, the Mini and the Wing, plus others. The trick in selling smaller cars is to make them "cool", and fast and fancy enough so the owners won't have to apologize when they drive their friends and family around. Crosley found that out too late. Thanks!
