Why so...they own them, why shouldent the do with them as they want ? Personally, wouldent be caught dead in one of those tin cans.

I don't know if you're being ignorant, or just referring to the GM EV1 only...

GM cars are NOT tin-cans, if you look around your environment, how many 80's early 90's Japanese cars you still running running with NO rust, no bad paint, tail-lights still working...? NONE, sure, GM of the 70's 80s and early 90's were put together sloppily because of the Unions. BUT THEY STILL RUN! TODAY! 25 years later! old people still buy and take care of them!

I'll HAPPILY take a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cierra SL over any of those rustbucket Japanese cars, and I used to be a "Jap/Euro" car fanboy until I "saw the light".

If you are up to date in the auto industry today, GM/Ford are lightyears ahead of quality/reliability and fit-n-finish compared to Jap/Euro auto makers. Hell, BUICK is 1st place among people satisfied by reliability while Lexus is 2nd or 3rd.

UH...I was refering to the electric POS's...not GM overall. hell, if you look back a few posts I own 2 new (2009) Jeeps....

My reference probably should hasve been clearer, Hybrids, Electric Volt...bah..I will take my suv's any day.

You couldent pay me enough to own one those pieces of crap. But I seriousely think you need to calm down a bit....Its only because of the Govt Bailout (read tax dollars) that GM even exists today.

Check out the FCX Clarity. I 100% believe it will be the future of cars. It's 100% electric, with a hydrogen generator. Amazing car. It really is exactly what we need, and won't be too hard to impliment.

FCX Clarity

It has been around now for a couple years. It's genius. Here is a GREAT video that TopGear did.:

Edit. 100% whoops. I was in another thread, and saw at the bottom, it said "next", so I clicked it, without reading the date! Sorry.
