am i the only one who is SICK AND TIRED OF HONDA CANCELING GREAT CARS???

S&A Performance Magazine said:
The much anticipated Honda CR-Z has officially been canceled, said Honda CEO Takanobu Ito, just hours before it was set to be unveiled at the NY Auto Show.
This has much of the Honda fan base, which once exceeded the population of the 21st largest country in the world, quite upset. A statement released by Ito saying "The CR-Z has been doing so well in the local markets, that there is no need for the 'Sporty Hybrid' to be released in the US and Canadian Markets. Not to mention the production would, currently, be impossible to even consider it's release there."

After it's production ready debut in Detroit, the CR-Z has received much criticism on whether or not it will be able to perform well here in the US. But after it's official release in Japan, the CR-Z has gotten great reviews and has caused some people to change their mind on how the CR-Z will do. Nevertheless Mr Ito has still made this decision and now has infuriated much of the blogs and forums discussing the CR-Z.

Just Punishment

This was bound to happen. CEO Ito was very upset that American Honda did not want the CR-Z for the U.S. market after the 2007 Tokyo Auto Show. Now that intial orders have been strong in Japan and Europe, and the small Japanese factory has limited production capability,
there is no need for U.S. sales.

This is justified punishment for American Honda. But if all goes well, we may get the CR-Z in 2012 or 2013 when production catches up with foreign demand.

Mike says this website will be closing down on April 5, so if you have anything to say on this devastating news, now is the time.

The original post was on April Fools Day. Ummm... Perhaps it was a joke.
it's kinda difficult to convey sarcasm across in text... it's only after knowing the 'member' for some time and reading through some of their responses that one can come to conclude that the 'member' is a sarcastic kind of person...

so for that i am sorry but my post above was supposed to be read with a sarcastic tone... cheerio :p
