From s’s founder Sid E. Taylor’s press release:

I have been consistently frustrated by the misinformation and untruths I have seen on websites and in the media about the Big-3. In addition to the outstanding vehicles they produce, many fail to recognize the contributions the Big-3 have made and continue to make to the infrastructure of this Country. I feel compelled to do my part to correct the misconceptions and get the word out about these fine Companies that have supported our American infrastructure. They are committed to America because it is American. Instead of criticizing them, I believe we should be thanking and supporting them for their innovative, high quality, safety driven cars, trucks, SUV’s and Hybrids, but moreover, for being the steadfast stewards of our American infrastructure for so many years.

So when did the thousand days start? TTAC’s put in a call . . . [thanks to gamper for the link]

    tooling designer : August 11th, 2009 at 10:25 pm It’s funny that some on here really think that the transplants impact on the US of A is equal to the domestics. There is no comparison. ------------------------------------------- It's funny that some on here doesn't realize what separated the US of A from the US of SR. Do you honestly think Americans are smarter than Russians? The only difference is: You buy what's the best available in the US of A. You buy what's the Chairman thinks to be the best for you in the US of SR.

    If the (formerly) Big 3 were so good, the imports would never have gotten a foot in the door, much less come to dominate the market. Many import brands tried and are no longer available because they failed. This has finally happened to the Big 3 despite their home court advantage.

    sorry but years of mistreating my family and providing us with shoddy products has meant no one in my house, nor any of my relatives purchase domestic vehicles anymore. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

    @CarPerson, I think GM's attitude problem is not hatred, but that they just don't care--either about their product or about their customers. when you manufacture something even one tenth as complicated as a car you really have to care about what you are building. I should qualify that: they certainly do seem to care about the Corvette and a few other models. But I don't think they really care about their customers. And now they are floundering to try to stay alive.
