    Ok, Honda, this one`s for you:))) There is no dream you can not fetch, The ravine is just indistinguished steps, From which a pilot unfolds his wings in a stretch. There is no time when a glory page you couldn`t dare; I bow forward with a book of history, So full of conquests, commenced in a dreamer`s glare. And the sky dividing horizon`s an illusion, Just a dwarf-sized line of doubt, That one day will be erased by a dreamer`s solution. ( By Jurisb)

    Take note Government Motors and Crisis. This is what a real automotive company looks like. See, the public wants to purchase their products. Not hand you taxpayer money that you DO NOT deserve.

    Sorry, my sarcasm didn't come through on that post, just a joke.
