Bill Ford needs a product like Bill Gates:
Costs virtually nothing to make, distribute & sell with absolutely no
warranty whatever. You know it doesn't work correctly from day-one so you
get the government to OK that *and* you get the customers to pay *you* to
fix it - over and over and over again. When the customers get sick of that,
you paint it a different color and start all over.
During the worst period in Ford history (I'm sure that could be argued to
death), a single days output from one Ford plant would be worth more than 5

tarpit. They know they've been taken but they'll pay anything to make it
look like they haven't, just a hint that things work like the salesman said.
I do that for them. Or, more precisely, like Microsoft, to them.
But Bill Ford runs an actual business and can't tax almost every car
made the way Bill Gates can essentially tax computers with Windows.
Bill Gates didn't create but just brought order to the PC business the
way the public highway system brought order to auto travel.
