What's in our Car Town garage today?

1986 Ford Aerostar

Long before any other family-friendly Ford MPVs launched from USA and around the world, there was the Aerostar, a family MPV which shares its underpinnings from the Ford Ranger and the Ford Bronco. It was Ford's first attempt to create a multipurpose vehicle as a response from Chrysler developing their own line of minivans but little did you know that the Aerostar was one of the most aerodynamic vehicles developed by Ford since the SVO Mustang and the Lincoln Continental Mark VII because of its drag coefficient of 0.37.

2006 VW New Beetle

Even though the Golf succeed the Beetle as the "people's car", the Beetle is still one of the most popular machines in history thanks to its unique design and just before the 90's end, Volkswagen gave the Beetle their own modernized look and they called it New Beetle. Although it looks just like the original one, it now utilizes the same platform as the VW Golf.
