Just how bad is the industry downturn?

This bad

When I first saw the figure for November sales of cars manufactured in North America-- 236,000 units-- I thought maybe somebody had mistyped the first digit. Even 336,000 would have been a very bad month. But 236,000 is 17% below the dreadful October figure and 40% below the number sold in November of 2007.

Like I've said before, 2009 will be just as dismal. Hopefully in 5-8 years we see a revival of American cars and some cool new features and styling.
