One Hampster's Solution to Chrysler's Woes

|Over on Partizan.com (apparently a "Partizane is a 16th century weapon with multiple blades), there's a neat article by "NewHampster" (which is funny on several different levels) about how to solve the GM and Chrysler financial crisis. His (her?) solution - merge the 2 companies, set the Jeep brand free, and dump a bunch of vehicles.|It's an entertaining article - go read it.
The bottom line. Focus on only what you do best and dump the rest.
- Cut Jeep loose to try and revive it on their own without the anchor around it's leg.
- Build Cadillacs, large Buicks and Chevy trucks and build them better and more expensive than the competition.
- Develop and build a line of quality family vehicles around the Town & Country /Caravan idea. A division devoted to the family that needs more than just four wheels. Why not a Caravan camper or a Woodie Town & Country with rear deck designed for surfers and snowboarders?
And when the New Jeep brings back the straight six Cherokee, I may be first in line.
