A TTAC commenter suggests that it’s time for Fiat Chrysler to bring back American Motors:
The AMC brand name could be revived, for modern takes on archaic models — the Gremlin could be a Kia Soul/Nissan Juke competitor, weird and ugly and all that; the Eagle wagon would now be a mainstream competitor for Subaru; the Matador would be a huge failure, but would make the variations of the [Fiat] 500 look successful by comparison; the [Chrysler] 200 could be restyled and called the Concord or the Hornet — it couldn’t sell any worse than it does at the present.
There is, of course, a limit to this sort of thing:
A modern interpretation of the Pacer will never be seen, though, because window glass has pretty much gone out of style.
I blame side-impact door standards.
