OK, so scratch Chrysler. I wasn't aware of buyout. Now do your best on the rest. I'm sure you will come up with something.

You make my head hurt. Grew up in Michigan, worked in automotive manufacturing for a while. Would rather support the workers than the people who own the companies and keep shipping jobs out of country to make a little extra on an way overpriced item. That's just me. Feel free to mail a check to the Fords. Maybe their lack of funds due to my buying a foreign car is causing them distress.

As said previously, welcome to winter on teamtalk. When the exciting stuff really happens, and the jokes get a bit snarky. This is the kind of thing that should be done in person with drinks, makes it easier to get the tone correct. Sorry if my comments, while honest, seem upset. Not at all. Just different views of the world.

Got a pic of the Glastron? Love those boats.

Never mind. Don't care enough to chase it down. Also, don't care enough to try to help you see the light. Have a nice winter. Hope you have some great snow.

Not the first word I would choose. Tried to be friendly, also not a word I would choose. Thought all that legal pot was supposed to make people mellow?

I feel pretty strongly having seen what happened to the economy in Michigan as jobs got shipped out of country. He can think what he wants. I'd love to tell him he's right, but I just don't see the sense in both of us being wrong.

I'm sorry I must have missed something. Just exactly what part of my post telling you where to find pics of the Glastron was not friendly???

And for you kids in the group, The first bail-out babies "Lee Iacocca as CEO of Chrysler" Conned the US government into bailing them out. Much to his and his minions' credit they paid back all bailout money ahead of schedule. We had lots of crappy "K" cars running around.
Chrysler has been the whore on the block sucking cash from whoever was willing to take their turn in the drivers' seat. FIAT "Fix It Again Tony" historically does not make a reliable vehicle.
It is what it is in this global economy.
