The primary difference between the manufacturing of police cars and the building of ambulances is amount of work done by the automaker itself.
It was the Brits who first used the term “Yank Tank” to describe the cars produced by American auto builders. And, compared to the cars sold in Britain after WWII–around the time the term Yank Tank came into use–the cars of the UK were certainly smaller, better handling, and more efficient than those sold Stateside.

I became aware of my fondness for these numbers one night while nursing a $2 gin and tonic at a now-defunct Iowa riverboat-casino roulette table.
Automakers like numbers, too. Many storied model names have been enhanced by a carefully placed numeric suffix. Think of such classic monikers as Cougar XR-7, Fury II, and Galaxie 500, and you get the idea.
Imagine a mural artist accustomed to painting twenty-foot-high exterior walls switching gears to take a job designing brochures. Suddenly broad vistas have given way to index-card-sized pictures and fussy little logos.
