Let's Bail Out GM


Recommended Posts

This was precisely the topic I was posting on in another site when I was banned. Most people don't care. Those that think they care are woefully misinformed. It isn't as though they want vengeance because their '86 Pheonix was a piece of crap - the general public honestly believes we can get along just fine without a manufacturing base.

On the tree hugger sites, they want all manufacturing banished because it is 'dirty.' (It's okay for the Chinese to poison themselves, though.) In some quarters of society today the automobile is the source of all evil and General Motors is the flash point.

It is a very different, more selfish world than in '80 when Congress bailed out Chrysler.

The underlying message being that Americans/Canadians don't want to risk soiling (or gnarling) our hands. As though we cruise the the ether as high-minded philosophers, spawning high-concept sh*t as free-flowing as our beer-farts that we can sub-contract other societies to manufacture.

The malaise afflicting North America gives contrary testimony to that. (imo)

  • The Jeep Gladitator gets a gentle refresh for 2024

    Jeep is understandably reluctant to mess with success, and the Jeep Gladiator has been one of the brand's greatest success stories in the last decade.  So when it came time to give the Gladiator a nip-tuck, Jeep went in with the gentlest of hands. The biggest visual update is a refresh of Jeep's iconic 7-slot grille, windshield-integrated trail-ready stealth antenna, and seven all-new wheel designs. Inside is a redefined interior with more technology and amenities, including available 12-wa

    GMC Upsizes the Acadia for 2024; New 2.5L Turbo-4

    GMC caused a stir in 2016 when it downsized the Acadia in 2017 from its previous near-Yukon length. That downsize brought the Acadia down to be inline in size with the contemporary Jeep Grand Cherokee.  In the years since, the Grand Cherokee has grown and GMC is matching that with the 2024 GMC Acadia. Inches matter in this class and in that the Acadia gains (back) 10.6 inches in length and 3.2 inches in height. That equates to 80% more space behind the third row and 36% more space behind th

The refresh of the CT5 begins with the exterior. A new larger, bolder grille is flanked by new vertically stacked headlamps and Cadillac's sign
