There once was a tale which appeared in _Road and Track_

about the difficulties of the French engineers who had to deal with American Motors representatives when they adapted what became the Eagle and Alliance cars for the American market. One frustrated French engineer exclained: "In Europe, we don't care if the brakes make noise, as long as they stop the car; in America, they don't care if the brakes stop the car, as long as they don't make noise!"
