    I saw a truckload of Corvettes on the Pennsy Turnpike. They all had full body cloth covers on them, a far cry from the days when the the truckers just rolled them off and scratched the lower valances on the roadway as they unloaded them off the trailer (They did it to two of mine). It's about time they started treating customers like they wanted to have repeat business instead of cash flow instruments.

    Whats' really under GM's Hood? How about a 1.11 debt/equity ratio GM is enjoying due to $50B taxpayer cash infusion/ $30B fleecing of those "greedy bondholders" that Obama described. The $80B restructuring of GM's Balance Sheet is 150% of GM's current market cap today. Please don't reply if you can't interpret a Balance Sheet relative to competitive advantages per technology advancement, borrowing, mfg. expansion, funding of marketing incentives, etc.

    Very good report on earnings and sales fellas. As a current GM owner and a GM owner many times over (I've owned Chevrolets, Cadillacs, and Buicks) I am so happy to see GM is doing well. They've seemed to really gotten their act together financially and are here to stay. Their quality is much better now too, though I never had any issues with any of my past GM vehicles. John, I really enjoy reading your articles as you have some very good points that you present. Keep up the good work guys!
