Nope, GM just needs a gov't/taxpayer bailout or bankruptcy and
restructuring to spin-off the unions and/or retirement issues and the
spirit of Lee Iacoca to reboot Chevy just like with Chrysler years ago.
GM isn't dead yet. Long live the Chevy. We will rebuild the Chevys
forever like Cuba otherwise?

I'd love to have a heads-up display for gauges, softer and quiet ride.
What no Pontiac, Oldsmobile, etc? Sign of the times.
Labor costs wouldn't be an issue if it weren't for the necessity of World
elitist bankers/politician collusion and profit margins. I mean how much and
how long can you print money not based on the desirability of owning all the
gold or salt, and expect it to hold up? Even for them? It's not, and they're
getting desperate. Desperate enough to start world war III. I get so sick of
seeing nothing but delusionary thought translated into reality, as is
evidenced by just these few posts, that I know WE, Americans are sunk because
we are so stupid, stubborn, uninsightful, and too cowardly and soft to do
anything about any of it. One has to be able to think first.
Maybe you better take another look at union issues. If an automaker
has a layoff for whatever reason and the worker shows up and sleeps
all day, plays cards with is buddies, does crossword puzzles, etc.
then he/she still gets paid full wages. I know of a retired autoworker
who knew (and possibly did) of people clocking in, sneeking out the
hole in the back fence, drank all day, came back, and clocked out at
the end of the day. Oh, and if a critical worker failed to show up the
line could stop because nobody else was allowed to do the job.
I also know a trucker who tried to deliver equipment to a onion, er,
union plant. None of the forklift operators would unload it because
unloading equipment was not in their contract. Managers and
supervisors were also likewise not allowed to operate a forklift, per
union rules. After stealing about four hours of his time this truck
driver threatened to unload it himself (back up real fast and slam on
the breaks). They finally got someone after he was there for five
hours. They had to wait for someone authorized to come in special to
Boy, unions do such a great job of DRIVING business overseas.
