just my 2 cents..I've got a Toyota pick up and I love it. Had a Chevy S-10 and two Jeeps. This country exists on free markets and the people's
ability to choose what they want. Detroit has gotten their ass kicked for years, putting out shoddy products and charging twice what they are worth because of union labor getting 35 bucks an hour to watch a machine
put a car together.

Foreign car owners pay more for their vehicle because of import taxes
and fees. To me it's worth it because I can't afford to pay for repairs
before the dang payments are even half way paid. I will gladly support
an American auto maker who can at least provide the minimum of what I need...dependable transportation at a fair price.

This has been going on for years. Detroit needs to get a clue. America
has chosen, and the answer is a superior product.

As an automotive designer, I can tell you that your (Larry's) problem started when Toyota started when they started letting design work be done in the USA. People like me (but dumber) are doing it.

And Nick... all the profits from the US automakers goes to the top 5% (if that) of their employees, so that boat don't float.

Can you do me and all the unemployed auto worker's in the metro Detroit area...... call them about the idea you have, maybe then the state of Michigan will get the clue!
Tell them you invented it too
This state has no f-in clue! I digress, they do now but it's too late :-X

Yep. Too many models of a similar nature across many different divisions. i.e. Camaro/Firebird, sunbird/monza, and a few other models which escape me at this point. All they do is slap a differnet set a tailights and a different grill and it's another model...probably on they don't need. GM has no one to blame but themselves. Union has some blame but brunt is blamed on terrible management and even worse decision making. Honda and Toyota are grerat products that last a long time. Yeah, you are going to pay for them but you at least have confidence on getting 175,000 with relative ease on both these cars. Most American cars the owners begin to bite their nails around 80,000 waiting for some aspect of the drivetrain to fail. Bottom line...quality wins hands down and American Manufs. are playing catch up in a game I don't think they can win because exec. are only worried about their portfolios, stock options, and golden parachutes. Do it right and everything else will take care of itself.

I'm not sure what you meant brother Larry.
When the auto guy's lose their jobs, my trade gets hit 10 fold!
I don't see a rebound anytime soon.
