I will never buy a Government Motors car. Period.

Voyager - it's too late for me. All I can say at this point is that I will never again buy another Government Motors vehicle.

On the lighter side - found these two Chrysler commercials from the early 80s with Lee Iacocca. Whatever one may think about what may or may not have really happened - suggest these are commercials that just 'feel good' - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nppKMomMP..., http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6nmCFTmP...

I doubt I will be buying a GM or Chrysler product although I was very fond of some of their oldies.

The '55, '66, '77 Chevy, the '91 and '94 Buicks all great vehicles. The '67 Cuda, '69 Charger and '71 Dart were ok, but the '71 Fury was one of the best cars we've had.

I've owned a few Fords, the '66 Mustang the poorest and the '67 T-Bird the best.

It is time for us to upgrade to a newer slightly used car and we are thinking Ford, Honda or Hyundai.

There were still a model T Ford hauling a railroad tie strapped to each fender-running board to market in '53. Come to think of it, they were probably cut on a model T powered sawmill.

I think it returned with cheese and wine.

Wheels, Yeah I think your right. Sounds like a poor people poor ways story but folks worked hard for very little cash back then while very little cash went a long way.
