My GMC pickup truck clocked 400,000 miles yesterday. The motor has never even been opened for any work to date (knock-on wood, and all). Which indirectly brings to light the following point/question: what is going on in the Detroit car world? Detroit automotive manufacturing management and its allied cronies surely appear as very poor drivers – if their companies were automobiles, the wrecked firms would have long since been totaled for salvage, crushed, and recycled. If I had at my disposal the resources of General Motors or Chrysler, I could nearly guarantee a profit each and every year. Not only that, I could nearly guarantee that any such firm under my watch would be second to none in the automobile manufacturing sector. Would I need to ‘milk’ any tax-dollars from the nation to support the whims of any automobile firm under my leadership? I seriously doubt it!
