If There Was No GM...

WTF would you guys drive???

I've been thinking about this recently.

For me, I'd probably be driving Volvos (likely a V70 or XC70) or a Ford Taurus.

What would your non GM rides be?

I admit it, I'm a sucker for anything with agricultural tires.

Sweet!

Ford 500 (now the Tauraus). I liked it when I sat in it.

Old car. I always had a thing for the 1977-79 Thunderbird.

Perhaps a Mustang, used M3, RX-8 (would have to see how the rotary engine is first, though -- not sure I could go from the LS1 to the tiny rotary), I'd probably consider a WRX/EVO (perhaps used), 350Z (used), G35 (used), and perhaps a used Challenger, though I really don't care for its looks. Basically anything that's sporty and under $30k or so.

Probably old Lincolns or Chryslers instead of old Cadillacs, and have an old Bronco instead of an old Suburban.

She thinks your tractor SEXY!

No Brand New Cars? NP. I love much of the used cars from GM.

Either a Mazda 3 or a Fit.

There really aren't many other American cars that appeal to me. At all. There's the Fusion but that doesn't really count.

If GM went bankrupt and closed forever, I'd personally buy GM used vehicles while I'm sure the wife would be just as happy driving a new Volvo or some other foreign-branded vehicle. If I had to choose new, I'd go with a Ford F150 or Dodge Ram 1500 over any of the foreign trucks.

I think the point of the thread was if GM never existed in the first place.

Ford.... well, Mercury specifically.

If GM hadn't existed:

1. Horsepower race wouldn't have been nearly as large.

2. We would be 10-20 years behind in automatic transmission technology.

3. 10 years behind in FWD technology

4. 15 years behind in airbag technology

5. We'd say that "_______ is the Duesenburg/Lincoln/Imperial of ________'s" and it just doesn't roll off the tongue as nicely as Cadillac.

6. 50% of South Florida would have no idea what to drive.

7. There'd be no Ralph Nader... <maybe this one is kinda good>

8. The Model-T would have continued production till 1947 when Old Man Ford finally kicked the bucket.

9. BMW M5 owners would have to crank start their V10s.

10. Auburn/Duesenburg/Cord, Studabaker, Packard, Hudson, Nash, Edsel, Imperial, and Chrysler would still be around today.
