And then, there's this:   https://www.radioworld.com/columns-and-views/guest-commentaries/did-am-radio-just-get-hit-by-lightning

Hey Pigmeat! Don't forget the Ford Feista, a.k.a. their answer to the Dodge Horizon, or the Chevy Chevette, (Or as we called it, the Shove-It!).

I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a buial that will satify everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

"Ford, the company that brought you the Edsel and the Pinto, now brings you the new F-150 Lightning without an AM radio!"

Yeah, the wonderful lightning that's already been recalled over catching fire.
