Because one has yet to take off like the Motorcycle thread has to warrant it to be placed in the library.

US Government turned down the Auto Industry bail out program. They claimed they will not consent unless the union renegotiates terms. Union said it wasn't their problem.

And what is it the U.S. auto industries make? Last I knew, America didn't make a car anymore. Hell, GM, Ford, and Chrysler are all owned by over seas companies and 90% of the parts of all these "American" cars are made in other Countries like Mexico.

Yep, more correctly assembles cars rather than makes the components. 60% of any "Domestic" vehicle drive train now comes from the North (Canada people).

I'm a self-proclaimed grease monkey.

I like all cars for the most part. I have nothing against automakers be they domestic or foreign. They all make decent products. The pickings for a durable foreign pickup are rather slim though. And expensive.. they hold their value better, and are harder to get parts for (where I live) so I bought a Ford. Freakin' love the thing. It is easy enough to work on.. but I haven't had to work on my newer one. Changing oil doesn't count.

BTW, can your ferrari haul fencing supplies and dead critters or tow a trailer or handle gravel roads? Nope.. didn't think so. Get that crap outta here - I need a utilitarian vehicle. Not a fancy fast car.

I'm saving up for at least half the price of an 02 Subaru Outback or Forester and will work out a payment plan on the rest. I'd rather have a larger truck or jeep, but who knows what oil prices will be like, and next year the last thing I'll want to worry about is having enough money for gas.

there is no reason a ferrari can't do any of those things.

sure there is. No cargo area. Also, too low of ground clearance for gravel roads.

actually slinky the UAW said will re-work it's contract but it won't reopen negotiations for a completely new contract. Everyone thinks that the UAW is big bad organization that just wants to get it's greedy paws on all of the automakers' money. Assembly line workers' wages' are roughly 10% of the cost put into making a union made vehicle. UAW wages are slightly higher than those of non union auto workers but it's projected that by the end of 2010 non union auto workers in the U.S. will be on par with their UAW counter parts if not surpassing them. The UAW has actually turned down raises in the past, and recently I should add.

Now as far as cars I like, I gotta say I'm a Chevy fanboy. Dont get me wrong, they've made some bad cars before but every car maker has. One of my relatives has an all original, numbers matching, '63 Corvette that I've wanted since I was about 6 years old. Someday I'll have to make him a serious offer.

I'd really like to get my hands on the new Cadillac CTS when it comes out next year. Changing it up to a 2 door instead of 4, I think it's rated at 538hp and the torque is somewhere in that neighborhood too. Sweet looking ride. I would actually consider getting one but the price tag is gonna be just a little out of my range. :D Other than that I might look into getting a 3/4 ton Chevy truck and/or a Saturn Sky Redline.
