The paper considers a variety of dynamical phenomena that can arise from the competition between two car producing companies, competing with respect to the quality of their products. The delay associated with customer's reaction to the perceived car quality allows each subsystem to develop an oscillatory response, and the total system exhibits cascades of bifurcations leading to deterministic chaos in certain circumstances.
