These questions are easier than the last lot, for this crowd atleast.

Two part question: What company used the slogan "Ask the Man Who Owns One?" What company used the slogan "Ask Anyone Who Owns One?"

From whom did General Motors buy the "Buick 231cid V6?"

What did the Eagle Premier, Renault 25, Volvo 260, Delorean, and Peugeot 604 have in common?

What (and when) was Ferdinand Porsche's first automotive design?

What company formed Freightliner?

What do Subaru of America, Yugo, and the Bertone X1/9 have in common?

In the same vein, what do Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Alfa Romeo have in common?

In the 1980s, everyone experimented with four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive cars. AMC had the Eagle. Ford and GM each had one entrant in the United States. What were they?

AMC

The Renault/Peugeot/Volvo V6, manufactured by a JV company (Volvo soon pulled out)

Consolidated Freightways. In what must be a worrying precedent for the UAW the original unionized motor-frieight business was spun off into a seperately-traded company which went bankrupt, while the remaining non-unionized Con-Way business continues.

What do Subaru of America, Yugo, and the Bertone X1/9 have in common?

68:

I expected more from you! For the slogans, see above. Yes, GM bought the "Buick 90-degree V6" engine. Not Peterbilt. Not Chrysler. Not Packard. The KdF wasn't Porsche's first car. Merkur never offered an AWD car.

PRV V6 and Malcolm Bricklin are right, though.

Ford had an AWD Tempo... and apparently at one point sold an AWD, 5-speed, Diesel tempo...... yeah, it's strange, but a neighbor had one.

Pontiac had the 6000 STE AWD, and I think the Astro Van.

Well, minus BMW. Chrysler is a comonality between the rest. VW was a partner in developing the Rabbit/Omni, Benz owns Chrysler today, and Alfa had that horrible Lebaron/Maseratti rebadge.

There's another connection. BMW had a joint-venture in Brazil making engines for Neons and Minis. Alfa had nothing to do with Chrysler's TC by Maserati since Alfa Romeo was in no way connected to Maserati at the time, but Chrysler did import Alfa Romeos for a year.

But there's another connection between the four brands.
