Actually they might be catching on fire. Might not be the Volt's fault though as this numbnuts converted his Suzuki Samari to electric power also. Hope his insurance takes a long hard look at this one:

When OPEL GM failed here in Belgium, we hired one of the executives to join the staff.

When he got fired from OPEL, he got a handshake of 200K and invested it right back in the GM IPO... He even took a broker to do it for him...

I've been discussing that "investment" with him as the stupidest move ever but as a coporate GM lover, he just won't listen.

He's been pretty quiet these last few weeks :)

And I constantly remind him that it will go to 18$ by the end of this year :)

He must really love me for it :)

Cue Rattner on Criminal News and Business Channel to tell us what a great idea it was for taxpayers to sell their children a little deeper into debt slavery to bailout GM's unions.

"To break even, the U.S. Treasury would need to sell its remaining stake—about 500 million shares—at $53 apiece

Maybe if they delute their stock with 1 billion shares every quarter, they can get their money back?

I inherited a Buick from my Father.  Drove it for 5 years (hey it was paid for).  Last month, it caught fire in the Costco parking lot and burned up the engine compartment.  My new ride is a Honda Ridgeline.  Never set foot in a GM, Chrysler or Ford showroom.

I have a Ridgeline and a BMW, but I also own a '65 Chevy Caprice with a 396. Frankly I like all three vehicles very much.

"Good luck with that: not even State Street can institute a short squeeze of such epic proportions."

Yes they can, they did it pre-crash with entities like FNM and also GM.
And yes they will. This bitch is worth playing contrary with calls once it breaks hard to the downside. Long only. They have the $$$$, they want it up, so let them buy it up for you.
And yes, afterwards they'll enter chapter 22, playbook is still fresh from the last time.
GM, the perma IPO of the 21st century.

That's OK, Obama has a twofold solution:

1) Make government bigger and buy more GM fleet vehicles

2) Order LaHood to recall Camrys, Corollas, Fusions, Foci, F150s (done,) Altimas, Sonatas, Elantras, Civics and Accords.
