Helmet said it elequently to appease the media - what he meant was "American car mfgrs are a bunch of whiners when they don't make excessive amounts of ca$h, peddaling their "shit heaps" to "joe ignorant consumer". Don't blame foriegn manufacturers for being smarter, installing quality & value - and for US mfgrs downfalls". You don't buy a Rolex at Walmart - so what do you expect?
The only way you could give me an american built car is if I:
a)needed a winter beater
b) was homeless
c) was deaf, dumb & blind
d) was planning to car bomb someone.
