    Look at it this way, all the foreign car lovers (or American car haters) finally got their wish. Now they can cheer on.

    Sad that our generation is partially (or more) responsible for the demise of an American legend(s). Our ancestors are probably rolling in their graves.

    Hopefully GM will make it through this, somehow.

    I won't even say how happy I am to own a Ford at this point, it would just be wrong.

    The auto companies can partially put the blame on themselves. I went out last week to buy a new Silverado. I have an 03 and am happy with it. I know how much a month I pay and how much was owed. Also know what the interest rate was and my credit score. Checked the NADA and Edmunds trade in value and what the new ones are going for. Now to the dealer. I tell them what I want and how much I'm willing to pay. A little low, but maybe they will bite? They come back with a trade in for ALOT less than what was shone, and a monthly payment of 3X what Im paying now! Frocking crazy!!! And they wondered why I walked out. The truck wasn't that much nicer than what I have now.
    Checked at a Dodge dealer for a truck. Went in twice and never did see a salesperson. Guess they don't want to sell either?
    In thrust, we trust

    Used to be you only had a choice of a few dealers to go and look. Nowadays there is a dealer of every brand in every city. No wonder they are downsizing, maybe the cost of a vehicle will come down to affordable before long too.

    GM has way too many dealers per car sale. It is much their own fault this is necessary imo. They have numerous other problems to solve as well, related to over compensation etc.

    Dpnt forget you can also go on the internet and type this.
    The two hardest things to come by in life are money and muscles. They're also the easiest to lose.
