Interesting, its only a matter od time before others start to do the same. How many compinies can GM continue to hold before they start to loose more money, I think Hummer shold be the first to go. This is a class that i think is starting to feel the effect of recent laws and will only start to cost monye to run.

Hummer is fine, the only 'useless' thing GM has is SAAB.

Yeah, Tata could handle the hit that Hummer would give to the CAFE levels.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

I think the whole deal is disgusting. BTW, how can anyone take a company seriously with a name like "Tata"? Please.

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."
