Not sure which legislator thought up the idea of the Big Three sharing technology; but that is the silliest thing I've heard in quite some time.

They compete for market share based on their ability to meet or exceed the consumers needs/desires.

If they offer the same product based on shared technology, why have three auto manufacturers? We should let two of them go belly up and place all of our energy into salvaging and operating one sole providor.

Of course he's smart, that's why you married him. :laugh: He did forget to mention that if only one should survive, he hopes it is Ford so he has access to parts for the Mustang.:patriot:
