  29. guys we've been hearing about this for a while and I think the ford flopped press have milked the dismay resentment outrage and indifference for all they're worth. let's hear about it again later when other solutions and replacement intentions materialize. the project provided decades of data and was ultimately outdated to the efficiency of maintenance standards. If it was a dish of chow mein, it would be refused at this point. rehashing it for consumer consideration is no longer reccomended.
