  1. well something good is finally happeneing inthe auto world – maybe that stupidity of a plan was a kick in the ass too them….but uhmmzzzz – what is chrsyler doing…hopefully kissing fiats ass cause they need them severely…

    good stuff there darling

  2. Wow. A bailout recipient that is actually using their money to help repair the economy?! Who knew!? It’s acutally a vey smart idea to generate income long-term. People will be paying off cars long after the economy (hopefully) rebounds. Smart strategy.

  3. this is true…but that is IF the economy rebounds – which i think could potentially start with the auto companies get back on their feet – casue when that does…micghian gets back on its feet (yeaaa we are total slackers right now) and i mean thats 1 state down 49 more to go – and there isnt as much work to do in the other states cause – we are ranking as the 2nd worst economy in the USA…

    now if we can get the banks on board – well wham bam problem solved
