Obama Sold Americans Lemons. Thirteen Americans Died In Those Lemons

After finally solving problems with computer viruses this past weekend, there was an e-mail waiting from a good friend. He was wondering about General Motors’ recall of 2.6 million cars for faulty ignition switches, which have caused at least thirteen deaths, and what the Obama administration knew at the time it was illegally bailing out GM  with $49 billion of your money. Well, one thing we can say with  certainty is that President Obama was totally unaware of this problem at that time, because he never knows anything until or unless he hears it on MSNBC. The truth is that […]

Is This the Next Toyota Supra? The FT1 Concept

The rumbling is that this is the next Toyota Supra.  It is the Toyota FT1 concept.  Motor Trend’s YouTube Channel has the video… The Toyota styling, particularly in the front, seems over-wrought to me.  Too busy for my tastes.  I’d like a much cleaner design.  But, I’m sure that there are more than a few car nuts out there that have their checkbooks on standby.  No matter what, this is a bold announcement that Toyota wants back in the sports segment.

And like any other effective virus, the union bosses are mutating to find new hosts to infect… The UAW is organizing the boycott to protest the refusal of transnational automakers to unionize employees in the US.

Toyota: About to Re-Learn the Lesson of the Pinto?

Even automotive history repeats itself.  Let’s compare Toyota’s sudden acceleration… A top Toyota official claimed that a negotiated agreement with U.S. government auto-safety regulators prevented a widespread vehicle recall and saved the Japanese auto giant more than $100 million, according to a document obtained by The Washington Post after it was turned over to congressional investigators. To the Ford Pinto… Cost-Benefit Analysis One of the tools that Ford used to argue for the delay was a “cost-benefit analysis” of altering the fuel tanks.
