    I’d like to ask Kurt if Peter DeLorenzo looks like any Shiny Happy People he knows.

    I’ve heard you guys mention several times on this podcast that GM and Ford have or are in the process of launching their best product lineup ever. Do you think these companies will make the right decisions to continue to build on this momentum, or should we expect to see these models de-contented over the next few years to the point that they are no longer competitive in their segments? From what I can see, models like the ’09 Mustang went out on a high note in this regard, so maybe there’s hope that in 3-4 years the Taurus or Malibu will not be the same car as today minus vanity mirrors & map pockets. Thanks for the great podcast.

    @ jumped-ship: now that the Detroit Three have pretty much jetisoned their legacy costs, they no longer have to make their products cheap in order to be price competitive. For the first time in over 30 years they finallly have the opportunity to effectively compete against other automakers.

    I would like to hear the gang comment on Mexico, Canada and mostly Japan about chipping in to keep the cash for clunkers going a while longer. Japan spent billions manipulating currency for years, Why not toss a few to their largest market seeing how they seem to be cashing in more than anyone? I excluded Europe because they have their own plans we benefit from.

    Love the show- Mike
