After an American car company recreates
its legendary 1960's Ferrari-beating race car
, the first $150,000 2005 production car sells at a charity event for $400,000 over sticker price
, (to a Microsoft-enriched individual
, of course) and many months later, dealers are still asking up to $200,000 over sticker
, or at least $150,000 over sticker
. The "experts" at Edmunds say the car is selling for about $100,000 over sticker
(seeing their "True Market Value" requires a few clicks from this page), and the widespread belief is that these admittedly amazing cars
are virtually impossible to find and all selling for at least $100,000 over sticker.
But using publicly available data, including completed eBay auctions and public documents
, this non-commercial site
shows the truth to be very different than the hype.

Ford will sell hybrid Escape at a loss.
In order to get technology out to the public, and get feedback from customers, Ford is going to release it's hybrid version of the Escape SUV, and take a loss with it.
With today's economy, who knows what that will mean in the end for an already struggling Ford.

As the biggest, burliest SUV sold in the United States -- nearly 19 feet long and weighing about 7,200 pounds -- the Excursion
was attacked by social critics who accused Ford of environmental irresponsibility. I for one, will not miss it
