What do you think?
« on: May 01, 2009, 04:41:47 AM »

What do you guys think of Chrysler filing for bankruptcy and a merge with Fiat? Will they make it? Will they stay as a separate Corporation or get swallowed up? What does this mean to the third largest car maker/employer in America?

From what I hear, the concessions they made with the unions will divert a bankrupcy.  Fiat is going to be a cash cow for them.
 
I really think this is a ploy myself.  It's a way of shedding their debt.

i think i miss when the auto companies had money and built cars people could afford that had style and wern't plastic.

Chrysler should create a surrogate , the "AntiChrysler" and the two can slug it out for dominance... ugh im tired.

Only time will tell.  As for me, this is shades of AMC.  They were bought by Renault, then by Chrysler, then gone.
 
The same could happen.  If it does they have only themselves to blame just like every other car company that no longer exists.

From my post at Moparts;
While it's nice to see Chrysler survive, the fact
that it is now controlled by a gov't entity is very disappointing. Look
at how well that worked for the British car manufacturers.

Up next; the new Chrysler model debuting in 2012...say "Hiya" to the   Trabant v2.0bama

I think it will all come out in the wash, Fiat only has a 30 percent share I'm hoping they come out with another "world-beater" like the Omni/Horizion that gets a bazillion MPG and they won't be able to build em fast enough to meet the demand. 
Only it will probably be a hy-brid
