And that is how GM trumped Ford.

Then the Japanese taught all that one could have 
all of those choices plus reliable high 
performance and the US spent a lot of money 
it didn't have at the time to retool and 
we got our money back.  Then they moved 
the manufacturing plants to American because 
the gap time made the Japanese too expensive 
a labor force to build the products its 
engineers designed and the Americans were 
too expensive to sew cloth so that went 
to Mexico down the NAFTA pipeline.

And here in the Land 'o Cotton, we got to 
build Mercedes SUVs.  Yahoooooo! Ebb and Flo
were not just members of the Mothers of Invention; 
they were also Turtles!

Aw gawd, it's Friday, ain't it?

Sometimes this permathread reminds me of Henry Ford, who supposedly said 
that he would paint his cars whatever color the customer wants, so long as 
it is black.   If black Model T XML works for your customers, great ... but 
some people seem to want it in blue, with a little more power that requires 
higher-octane non-standard fuel, and are willing to pay the price.
