Here’s something to think about: for any given automotive marque, what is the greatest variance of vehicle size for the vehicles that wear that marque? Sure, the size difference between a Ford Festiva and a Ford Expedition is big, but it’s less than, say, a Ford Fiesta and Ford Trimotor, for example. But even that difference in scale is nothing compared to what I think is the biggest size delta of any carmaker brand: Hyundai. Hyundai has made tiny city cars like the Hyundai Atos up there and they also build colossal container ships under the Hyundai name, too. That’s a massive spectrum of sizes for vehicles wearing the Hyundai brand.
Can any other carmaker even come close to that? I mean, Chrysler back in the 1960s and 1970s sort of could have made a claim, sort of. I mean, there was this:
And yes, Chrysler had a hand in the Saturn moon rockets, but that Saturn IB there in the ad was never badged as a Chrysler anything, so it doesn’t count. And, even if it did, I think it’d still be smaller than a container ship.
Am I missing a company here? Is there a company that makes microcars and gigantic cruise ships under the same name? I don’t think so?
I’m in the air to LA now. I’m waving at you! Can you see me?
