Probably like when Jim Wright wrote that book with nothing on the pages and it sold out to his campaign supporters.

'Hawk, what's your point?

Look how many people bought Aztek's...

At least the Vision seems to be decently designed, and of better quality than pretty much any GM product.

But you're right. It is a homely beast.

If they keep selling 100 of them a year just think of the enormous profits they will make! Are you kidding?

If they don't find something else to build besides overpriced cruisers they aren't likely to see another 10 years. Of course they have other problems too like the fact that Polaris Corp builds the worst ATVs outside of China.

You know, that red and black one looks just the ticket for General Zod when he's out looking down on us tosevites. Way better than that armored car the Pope drives.

General Zod feels that the Victory Vision is a fitting mount for all Big Uglies.

They don't (IMO) look half bad without the top-box. Sort of a streamliner look; it's when they add the top box that you get all that weird looking Jetsons stuff. The other day I saw one with the topbox covered with stickers to look like one of the NASCAR race cars. Now that was hideous!

What about the toilet seat instrument panel? That's kind of scary...
