OK, so I'm headed in to church this morning, and about five or six blocks ahead of me I see the rear end of a new black Jag X-type, or so I thought. As I got closer, it was a Hyundai Sonata! I felt really embarrassed until I saw the vanity license plate...it read "FAUXJAG" - guess I'm not alone, at least!

Hey, Mickey, I drove by a Hyundai dealership the other day & though they had a bunch of new Jaguars on their lot - turned out to be Hyundai's! &, unless you look closely at the grile, they all looked like X-Types!

I wondered while I was at that dealership what would happen if somebody stuck a leaper on the hood of a Hyundai...we all know what ferrari does to kit car makers who 'knock-off' their cars...& what Coke does to restaurants who sell Pepsi as the generic brand name of 'Coke'....
