I’m no automotive guru, and generally don’t write about non criminal , or real estate matters. However, I’ve been hoping Detroit can turn things around for the good of their employees and for the nation. One out of every 10 manufacturing jobs is automotive based. see; http://detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20081103/AUTO01/811030343# Now I will readily admit that i try and be ” green” but I love muscle cars.
Recenly GM has requested nearly 25 billions dollars in Federal assistance for a possible take over of Chrylser. see http://www.newsweek.com/id/159536/page/1 Logically, that does not make sense to me as both companies really are not doing well. see http://blogs.businessweek.com/mt/mt-tb.cgi/ 12234.1336412597 In fact the whole US automotive manufacturing business is on the ropes. Is this going to be the death of good ole made in the USA cars, I don’t know but they are in real dire straits. Some conservatives are opposing any measures. They argue that big unions, bad designs, poor managment and lack of vision and free market principles dictate they should sink or swim on their own. see http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=ZTZiNmQ1YmQyZjRlNTVjNjllYjBkODdlZDZjNWQ0Zjc=
I bought a 2005 Infiniti G35 coupe, ( and just paid it off last year) partly becaused i fell in love my High School 70’s with the Datsun 240Z. I guess this was my mid life crisis.
Now you decide, but the below photo of a 70’s Camaro in my humble opinion is was awe inspiring , daring, riske, vogue , muscle stud. As they say in the Bronx maybe Im Old School, but the new line up from GM is not Kool. They have real design and imagination problems. Is it time for QUEER EYE FOR THE DETROIT GUYS
Even it’s sister the Trans Am became legendary and iconic in music when Bruce Springsteen in his Cadiallac Ranch song sang ” even Burt Reynolds in his black trans am all going to meet at the Cadiallac Ranch. I can’t see Kayne West or 50 cent celebrating the new camaro. Sad stuff. To see the whole line up see;http://detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20081103/AUTO01/811030343#
