    Just read an interesting article. A Toyota plant in Indiana is going to export something like 15,000 SUVs to the Mid East in the next couple of months. Click on the link if interested.

    Just thought it was interesting because of the bail out talks going on in DC. I still think the only real answer for the Big 3 is to file for bankruptcy. That is the only way for them to get out from under all those legacy costs. I think the Big 3 have great products, but they can't compete with paying thousands of people who haven't worked in years.

    If they take money from the government then they will have to answer to the government "car czar". Then they will be screwed for sure. Pelosi, Frank, Waxman, Reid running the auto business??? Those clowns combined with a couple other government types wouldn't know how to check the oil in a vehicle. And if they did figure out how to check the oil - we all know Congressman B Frank would end up putting the dip stick somewhere else other than back in the engine.

    Bisi, you pretty much nailed it. Car czar...Ted Kennedy has some car experience, but apparently too sick.

    Obama's first official act is to Preside over the demise of the UAW...while the Blago storm swirls around him.


    Not how he wanted to start.
