I have wondered why Ford (as well as others) seems to have trouble figuring out what size of car (truck) to make. With the Ranchero they start out with a regular size sedan, then change to the Falcon series for a few years and then gradually start using a larger body frame for design. Maybe Sean or someone closer to Detroit understands this. Is it trying to find the "right sellers" market, or is it design boredom? I for one am kind of glad they did it, since it gives a wider variety of "cheros" to choose from. Ford seemed to do the same thing to the Thunderbird, and also the Mustang. I know for the most part anything is done to try to get a bigger share of the market. As usual, a simplistic thread from a simple mind.
