The dealers will need a bailout as well.
TD, whats happening on Dec. 7th that pertains to shadow banking ?
Me too - I wanna know.
The only thing I know of for Dec 7th is a European call for a bank run - withdraw all your money.
Irish voters go to the polls, oh, and a lot of repeats on TeeVee about the Germans bombing Pearl Harbor! :>D
Tyler, I don't have the numbers yet; did you see the state/Fed/rental fleet sales % report yet? It was running 32-34% of total monthly sales for GM and Chrysler, but I haven't had time to dig those out of the data yet....
Yep, November numbers were bad here.
Ahhh, the good stuff.
Anyone check out Michelle-Caruso Cabrera's new hairdo today?
And she's wearing what looks like a straight-jacket to keep her boobs supressed.
Here are some pics from the good old days....
Well, you wouldn't look at the face would you. Looks like the wicked witch of the easts offspring. I don't normally critic the way people look, but these people are all servants of evil, so i'll make an exception.
Oh Yea.. Come to Poppy Chulo. Poppy is waiting.
Those arrows are hilarious.
She has to compete with Mandy Drury the hot blonde from Australia, thats why. She used to be the hot chick after Bartiromo started to lose it now they bring in Mandy to spice it up. Don't get me wrong I love Michelle, but I think that she knows those 36DDD's are what keeping her having shows and specials. I feel sorry for Sue Herrera, for a woman that essentially started the network back in the early 90's she's still anchoring the desk and don't get to have her own programs or shows like the others. You can say that she is possibly the manager, but if she was what the hell is she still flying an anchor desk. Back in the 90's and early 2000's she had more air time, but not anymore.
I think they are going to push some people out.
Build and they will come.... But not me.
Exxon/Mobil was not a bad buy after all .... :-)
This country is an embarrassment.
I will never participate in anything GM related for the rest of my life. I have instructed my progeny to carry on with that tradition after I pass.
I wouldn't take a GM car/stock/bond if they gave it to me for FREE.
I'm sure the chicks are going to go wild for this ride...
Hehehehehehehehehehe.. Oh man. This is the fucking shit. Outstanding.. Uncle George says, " Yum Yum eeeeeat em up"
Ah the Volt, gonna save Gov Motors. The real volt looks a citation rather
than the above Volt.
ah the beauty of the bubble... even the car looks real.
who is bottom center woman?
scrawny, ain't she? reminds me of an old girlfriend.... love tits on a thin girl
Audrinna Patridge (wife watches too much E!).
You can tell by the spreads, this is definitly the bubble phase.
It also looks like she's leaning backwards a bit. Not that I'm complaining, of course.
I must say, Michelle looks in pain in the first image. Looks like she got things under control now.
Believe it or not....
GM outperformed Tata Motors today....
Tata is having a hard time getting financing for guys buying the ultra cheap car they push in India.
This will be cleaned up quickly the march upward will continue.
ok ... very distracting ...
but back to the subject, any mention of car companies dumping their inventory onto fleet purchases?
So what was this post about stuffing something?
wouldn't be surprised if they also channel stuffed the unemployed to make the numbers look better!
Government Motors builds 100,000 extra cars before the midterm elections....
Apparently Redbox parent, Coinstar, has also been massaging numbers with a new type of sales data to make things look peachy.
good catch. increasing capacity by 100% through double installations, then comparing those numbers to the same location when it had one installation. that is a borderline practice.
they need to break them out single kiosk vs single kiosk and double kiosk vs double kiosk, in order to get a real same store sales picture.
i smell bad things for CSTR temporarily if they are forced to do that.
Not knowing the auto dealer/manufacturing business how does GM force inventory onto the dealers?
They fired a lot of dealers in bankruptcy. If you were a dealer and wanted to be, you may be happy to use taxpayer money to fill your lot
But that's the thing, I remember they reversed their decision not to dump many of the dealers they originally intended to, maybe this was the reason, to hide inventory and distort sales numbers? I just don't understand the process in which manufacturers force inventory on to the dealers.
Well they fired a lot of dealers in republican districts and those who made contributions to the Bama's opposition.
So kinda' Left and East coast gonna do government motors and the real country won't?
It is un-American to buy GM or Chrystler.
The way it works is that part of the dealer franchise agreement states that you have to buy some certain number of cars per year. Needless to say this can cause friction when those cars don't sell...
One word: Toyota
It appears that Ford is doing a similar inventory build thru September. Anyone have October and November Numbers

I sold my business to a fortune 200 a few yrs ago. They stuffed like crazy to make their quarterly numbers. It's like crack because once you start you can hardly stop. Of course, this went hand in hand with 8 restructurings in 6 years. And the CEO is still there! unreal. Know what their capital allocation model was for business units? first come first serve. No joke.
How are GM sales outside the USA.... China ?
Sales in China are good!! For some reason all those little asses prefer a Buick? But that means nothing for America because they are all built in China out of Chinese parts and materials BY CHINESE WORKERS! Talk to me about China's GM Sales when you see GM'S leaving the port in NJ heading for China.
