I would be worried it would have an effect on the production quality if they start cutting corners in the manufacturing process and materials.

The big 3 are asking for another $50 billion in U.S. backed loans to keep afloat for the coming year. The Dems will make sure they get it, but they have to use it for "politically correct" operations, like health-care spending and retooling plants that produce high mileage cars.

Here is a quote from Public Citizen, a consumer- advocacy group in Washington-
The Energy Department ``should not provide loans to upgrade plants that produce performance vehicles,'' Joan Claybrook, Public Citizen's president, said in a statement.

So hopefully GM will find a backdoor to finance upgrades and quality control for the Camaro.

Uh, if this situation means the Camaro goes (which I doubt it will) for the company to carry on, that is a no brainer ;)

what your going to find later this year/early next is about 30% of the Chevrolet dealers either closing or being sold. Toyota is the only other automaker that would possibly consider buying GM. They already work together on a few projects, the Vibe/Matrix being the most notable.

If you own, work at or have dealings with a dealership, better start kissing ass to the "Big Guy" or you'll be looking for work...................

why are there so many DOOMDay sayers on this forum?
:BangHead:haven't you heard? we're all going to be driving toyota's soon (any day now)...GM is going to just go poof and implode (you know, because of "red ink rick"). oh, and gas will be $10 a gallon too.

This is the first time that we've ever had a recession so I can bet we'll be living in caves in a couple of years. This message board will have to be carved into the wall. Nice knowing you guys.:BangHead:

My Bad. I started this thread before searching the site for similar threads. Didn't mean to upset anyone, I'll try not to ask repetitive questions or be a Doom troll anymore. Hope this apology brings relief to your burning mangina.
