When TTAC’s Bertel Schmitt first blogged the story that China had designs on Chrysler and GM, the resulting traffic melted our server. So we added another one. That one melted too. Our stalwart TTAC technical team tells me they’re now load balancing– and doing something about handling our traffic spikes. The view counter’s disappearance serves as a stark non-reminder of that terrible, wonderful day. And, of course, Bertel wasn’t just whistling Dixie (or whatever Germans living in China whistle). Bertel’s given us more inside dope today, as Bloomberg breaks the story into America’s MSM: “Dongfeng Motor Group Co., China’s third-largest automaker, said it had received proposals from investment banks to buy assets from General Motors Corp. as the U.S. carmaker tries to avoid running out of cash,” Bloomies reports with a hint, hint, nudge, nudge, knowwhatImean? “’We’ve gotten e-mails and investment materials asking us whether we would be interested in buying some of GM’s assets,’ Hu Xindong, head of investor relations, said by phone today. ‘So far, our management has not yet reviewed the issues and we have not yet responded.'” GM says it isn’t in talks with Dongfeng, but that’s not what the story says, is it?
