Of course not Mikey, that's why GM's market share is declining (along with
the other members of the Little Three). The buyers, the ones that determine
who fails and who succeeds are buying Toyota and Honda-their market share is
climbing. The term "Big Three" now means GM, Toyota, Honda. After the auto
talks GM will be down. Poor, poor Mikey, still in permanent denial.
Obviously GM does. And they've got the proof. How many people bought a
SECOND Vega? I don't have the numbers, but GM does, and they were
IMPRESSIVE. Same with the Olds based Deisel. And the Citation/Phoenix
And how about that Cimmaron?
That said, I'm driving a Pontiac TransSport.Forth American GM I've
ever owned, 5th GM period. First was a $20 '57 210, which I scrapped
before I even got it on the road due to terminal body cancer. Then
came the 1928 Chevy National. Second was a 1967 Chevy II - I owned it

what the point? One can not buy those cars tokay. I owned a Toyepet they
were as bad as a vehicle can get.

materially 'better' for the price does not know the vehicle business.
