    I heard he tried but his production facility needed new tooling and the UAW wanted a 25% stake in his profits. The sad part is the UAW wanted him to add $4k per vehicle to cover healthcare costs... and $1k to cover Gettlefinger's salary.

    Hey Junk, Saturn is still available but I was hoping you'd rescue Pontiac!

    Great idea!


    Hey Junkie- I've got some birthday money coming to me... wanna go in on buying Pontiac with me?

    Jrose has $150 bucks he made on the races. Maybe he'll invest with us!

    I cut up a bunch of steel and sent it to the junk yard $1021.

    Just think if we all chipped in what ever we can afford we might be able to make an offer on Saturn or Pontiac.Keep in mind we're already in better financial shape that GM

    Apparantly, even the PRC Government doesn't want Hummer. The conventional wisdom is that Central Control believes Hummer does not fit the image of what is envisioned for China. Maybe if they do a hybrid right away, they'll get away with it and shove that in our faces. Great, just great.

    Last I heard, Roger Penske has a MOU with GM to buy Saturn and his plans are to import the products that he needs and maybe keep a few of the existing products around for a while. Roger's a smart man, keeping the UAW out of the picture.

    If we bought Pontiac, Junkie could be CEO and Six Shooter could be Chief Engineer!
