$280 a ton, remove ALL fluids, mercury switches, etc, scale it, pass go, collect 500 greenbacks.
They are ALL junk, it's our responsibility to pick the flavor of the junk we drive.
American junk has made a resurgence...seems to be inversely proportional to the number of golf memberships purchased, and the consumer reports number of black dots in the annual Auto Issue.
Smitty, hear much about the six speed GM auto? Don't dream of pulling a trailer with the "Latest and Greatest". Check the bulletins. Exhaust manifold studs....electrical gremlins.....horrible fuel economy with the 6.0 liter.....only thing worse is a V-10....
I drive GMC, GM and Ram trucks, so I do support the local parts professionals, and I have NEVER been left beside the road by any American built vehicle. So I believe we fix the problem from within! Ship-can the execs, let the engineers and enthusiasts do their thing. Do it once, do it right and fix things as part of ongoing QA/QC.
The road chemicals we have to endure will ruin anything built today, and if you don't think so, ask any trucker, repair facility, or bean counter. Painful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
