Oh my prediction.

Chrysler is liquidated, Jeep goes one way (maybe Nissan?), Chrysler and dodge go Chinese.

GM files Chapter 11, comes back with 2-3 brands Chevy-Caddy-Buick, 1/4 of the company it used to be. seperated from its Global Partners

Ford Files Chapter 11, has some supplier issues, mercury dissappears, other than that they are unchanged and survive Bankruptcy quite well.

you don't have to school me on that engine, it showed up in an Imperial slightly before it became the staple of minivans


Immortal has a 3.8 in his pretty fifth ave.

I don't even want to think of the end result if this does not get resolved in a manner that helps the industry. They bailed out fannie and freddie and they all got a vacation. But they want to put a czar into the auto industry and give them half or less $ than they need to stay alive? I can understand SOME oversight, but I think they are getting a little nutty. Best of luck to all who are employed or contracted by the affected companies.
hopefully your rounds are not being made by jp fab.

I think the movie escape from New York will become reality TV. only it will be escape from Detroit instead. I can see them fencing off Outer drive and then just catapalting people in.

OPEC cuts production, gas price doubles, BMW, VW, KIA, and Toyota price american mechanized infantry out of production.
Congress whines "how could we have known?"

Due to collapse of auto industry, steel mills and suppliers of other raw material soon close down, leaving the United States with no manufacturing base whatsoever. US armed forces have to use reject Chinese AK's, Geely builds the HMMWV replacement, and Somalian pirates attack and take over the USA hacking the limbs off of everyone without a nice tan.

the only reason ford isn't asking for gov't $$ is that they mortgagued every asset they had when mulally took over. they have not disclosed how long that line of credit will last.

nevertheless, our manufacturing base will continue to erode and when a real war breaks out, they will may have to send all of us to the front lines using the guns we have at home.

after the collapse of the government, the continental U.S. is over run with armed bands of children with low tech devices.

That's right, and Vietnam wasn't a war either, or Desert Storm, better tell all those guys they can't join the VFW....

Only people making money in Iraq are the mercenaries, ummmm... security forces....
