Ah, yes. Nothing like waking-up on a cold morning to find your line-drying socks and skivvies doin' their imitation of Carbon Fibre bodywork......

Default Re "dx"

I've noticed one poster in particular with a different handle - thank goodness - that writes in a very, very similar style sans the "doing your wife, sister, brother, dog, et. al" stuff.



Danged if I can remember who that was. I'll be on the lookout.

Not even a single crack about the once ubiquitous milk crate?

***warning: seriously off topic*** What the hell is wrong with Ford? I am really getting pissed off. Just after writing the last important and noteworthy post to this thread to profoundly enlighten you people (well I had a glass of Luigi Bosca Malbec Reserva from Mendoza, good stuff) I decided to read news:



Ford announces they are going to mortgage 18 bn USD of assets for the tough times ahead. Hello??? Could it be that their strategy of producing cars that people don´t want to buy is not working out too well. Do these top guys playing golf in Pebble Beach know that real guys i.e. europeans don´t buy full size trucks at all? Or smaller trucks. Try big US sedans. Or that we don´t import even Camry to EU any more for the cholestrol.



The problem with Ford is that the big bosses get a big stompin boat as a company ride. They don´t go to dealerships to haggle over prices. They don´t pay gas. They don´t know what´s the filling interval. Do they queue for one hour for the service? Do they run the cars five-six years and get parts from AutoZone and get the fan done in Pet Boys? No. Then they wonder why people don´t want to buy the cars they made the product decisions on.

I don't know. I like spontaneity when I travel. You know, "Hey Babe, this looks like a nice place. Shall we stop?"



What about those little unforseen incidences where you suddenly find yourself spending an extra night somewhere due to a break down, etc. If you have all your stuff, your babe will never know the difference.

Americans are wondering the same thing. American auto manufacturing has become moribund with only Daimler owned Dodge showing any sign of forward thinking.



What do you think's going to happen to any company that's required to pay college level salaries for semiskilled labor (jobs that take maybe a week to learn) and on top of that they have to pay thousands of idle employees? The amount of money that the execs take is a drop in the bucket compared to the the amounts paid to the lazy and shiftless UAW time servers. There's plenty of blame to go around and greed amongst factory workers is no more noble than greed amongst executives.



The labor/retirement packages that were negotiated back in the 60s and 70s were pie-in-the-sky nonsense and the chickens are coming home to roost. Add to that a management that is dominated more by bean counters, MBAs and committees than enthusiasts and the current course of Ford and GM is inevitable. They still haven't figured out that you gotta build cars that will last 200,000 miles. There's not one single GM or Ford auto that is even partially attractive any more. They are as boring as Honda's motorcycle line up, if any such thing is possible.
