Introducing The All New “Progressive” Auto Lineup For 2010!

2008 Government-Subsidized Auto Show

A Car Czar must be appointed to distribute cash to our automobile industry so that we can protect it from the Capitalist evil of competition.

To highlight the urgent need for these measures and to emphasize the many successes of government-run automaking, we present the 2008 Government-Subsidized Auto Show.

“Every car came with a rear defroster to keep your hands warm as you pushed the car…” A triumph of Communist engineering!!!

Now get out there and make Socialist cars for the Party bosses!

Malaysia firm’s ‘Muslim car’ plan

The Malaysian carmaker Proton has announced plans to develop an “Islamic car”, designed for Muslim motorists.

Proton is planning on teaming up with manufacturers in Iran and Turkey to create the unique vehicle.
Safety features or fuel economy is one way of selling a car, but Proton thinks vehicles designed specifically for Muslims across the world represent a huge gap in the market.
Proton is the most dominant car on the streets here but the company has suffered recently after the government allowed more foreign cars to be imported.
The car could boast special features like a compass pointing to Mecca and a dedicated space to keep a copy of the Koran and a headscarf.
The idea came during a visit to the Middle East by a delegation of Malaysian politicians and businessmen.
Malaysian press reports say officials in Iran originally suggested the idea.
The firm has been in talks recently with VW about a takeover by the German car giant.
