Ok, two things really, I found this interesting ode to a Ka at a site that's new to me, www.thefordblog.com , now it's not a very active blog, but with this name how could I have missed it during many internet searches? follow the link to fordblog and then the article.
I like the Ka, it reminds me a lot of my old Festiva, and I know it will never come to the US, but it is available in Mexico. Could you imagine 48 mpg? My Festiva used to get 41 mpg, and was cheap to operate. I wonder if a car like the Ka or the Fiesta it's based on could make it here?
I've heard and commented on rumors that Honda, Nissan and Toyota are gearing up to introduce their super minis here. Ford has the product if they decide to answer the challenge.
