Once we learn the identity of the investors behind Cerberus’ Chrysler FIATsco, the “debate” will move on as if nothing happened. Even if Osama Bin Laden steps forward as the automaker’s real owner, the furore will only last long enough to confiscate his shares while the Congress restocks the multi-billion dollar bailout buffet. Remember: back when the bailout bridge to nowhere loans were going down, Senator Corker pronounced ChryCo DOA. History. Toast. Unsustainable. A blot on the landscape. A zombie. Nobody even blinked. Here’s your $3b. See you in a month. OK, ar the precise moment of Corker’s Chrysler Crucifixion, CEO Bob Nardelli’s eyelids went into Morse Code mode (translation: I paid for this abuse?). And then everyone pretended that no one had farted. Hang on; that’s not the most self-flattering of metaphors. OK, let me put it this way: the day that we learn the real story behind Cerberus’ investment is the not the day the company will face the music. Meanwhile, someone should tell the American public that Chyrsler’s CEO owns one of these.

    Who buys a Prowler... Someone who is too cheap to get a real custom roadster, like the Foose Boydster. Or, someone who doesn't even know the whole Coddington (rest his soul) inspired scene even exists. A poseur. Wannabe. Don'tknowhattobe. However, RF, I think the main message you struck upon in this post and podcast is WHY THE OWNERSHIP OF CHRYSLER MATTERS. And who are these people behind the curtain? And who stands to benefit from our money? You have clarified your position better than ever. The MSM can't even smell this story yet. Or know why it matters. Whoever breaks it and names names and amounts might just win a Pulitzer in Journalism.

    What kind of man buys a Prowler? I would. Take that for what you will. It's an interesting looking car that's cheap to keep up and will probably be worth something someday.

    Prowler is to hot rod as The Olive Garden is to Italian food. Sorry Robert, the SSR wasn't fast until the end, and it never handled well. It was a chopped Trailblazer.

    “Interesting” is what you call the hideous dress one’s wife asks you to critique." And you would say "ugly"? Now that's "interesting".
