Ford Motor announces it plans to drop all cars from its US line up save two.
The two would be the Mustang and the crossover Focus. All the rest go the way of the Edsel.
A Black Swan event is an unexpected occurrence which is seen in hindsight as perfectly normal and expected.
considering that this is the company that literally put America on wheels with the Model T and then Model A, it is truly remarkable. Granted both those models were available in multiple configurations including a pick up bed. I recently read that if the truck optoin was elected, the cab and chassis were shipped to the dealer in a large wooden box. The wooden box became the pickup bed. The dealer or buyer assembled the bed on the frame. Hence the term pick up was born as the buyer had to pick it up at the dealer.
