In the late 1970s, American car makers were obsessed with the idea of turning the automobile into a mass-market product.
The company’s top executives envisioned the automobile as a “platform for global growth,” as if the automobile were the “foundation of a whole new age.”
In an effort to get that “platform” moving, the automotive companies spent a lot of time thinking about the car’s appearance.
The cars would have to look like what the public wanted.
In this way, the car industry was “creating the new world,” as the company executive who first coined the phrase told a congressional committee in 1974.
The automotive companies even considered putting the car in every corner of the United States.
The goal was to turn American consumers into “owners of a mass product.”
The goal of the American auto industry in this decade was to sell cars to as many people as possible, to sell as many cars as possible to as wide a range of people as many of the customers could afford.
But as the 1970s progressed, the automobile companies had a number of missteps that were causing a lot more harm than good.
One of the big mistakes in the 1970’s was a huge increase in the number of cars produced, which made the automobile industry much more vulnerable to market fluctuations.
In 1980, for example, the number that made the cut in the U.S. auto market dropped to about 40 million.
By 1980, about half of all cars sold in the United Sates were used cars.
That number continued to drop as the industry expanded in the 1990s.
In 2000, the American Automobile Association reported that just 8.5% of U. S. cars sold were used vehicles.
By 2012, that number had climbed to 27%.
So while there were a lot fewer used cars in the early 1970s and 1980s, there was a lot less demand for them in the last few years of the decade.
Another big mistake the auto companies made in the 1980s was making new cars available to a very limited set of people.
The problem was that the demand for used cars was not high enough.
In the early 1980s and 1990s, when cars were in demand, buyers could buy the cars and keep the money for themselves.
But after the market for used autos shifted to the “affordable luxury” category, buyers were looking for ways to get more of their money back for the cars they bought.
When that happened, new cars were often made that were much more expensive than the ones they had already paid for.
The result was that a lot people lost money buying used cars, and a lot others lost money when the companies that made them had to make them available to fewer people.
By 2000, according to the National Automobile Dealers Association, there were about 1.6 million cars on the road in the country, and they were being sold in at least 10 million more than they were in 1980.
But that meant that the auto industry was losing money.
The problems started in the mid-1970s, and by 2000, it was estimated that the automotive industry had lost more than $2 trillion in value.
That’s a lot, and it was a problem that had serious repercussions.
A major problem was a high cost of maintaining the cars.
In order to keep the cars in working order, the automakers needed to maintain the quality of the parts that made up the cars, the amount of parts that went into them, and the quality and reliability of the assembly process.
And as these problems became more acute, the auto makers had to develop new techniques to keep their machines running properly.
The most important new technique that the industry developed was to put parts inside of parts.
To do this, the manufacturers would first place the parts inside a container that had the exact size of the car and the exact dimensions of the container.
Next, the assembly would take place inside that container.
This way, a car that had a badly cut corner or an over-sized tire would have a chance to repair itself before the parts were shipped to the assembly plant.
If the assembly line worked, the parts would be ready to go right away, and if it didn’t work, they would be shipped to another place where they could be used again.
These kinds of new techniques meant that cars that had been in use for decades could be maintained without too many problems.
But if they were not, the maintenance could be a lot harder.
For example, it had been a problem before the companies got into the process of making cars.
When parts for the engines were added to the car, the engine manufacturers had to remove the engine from the car so that the engine could be fitted into the engine bay of the next car.
But it was not until the mid 1980s that parts for cars began to appear in the engine that were made in a factory, as opposed to being made in-house.
Now the engine in a car is only
