    LET'S DO A LITTLE EXPERIMENT

    OK, a poster has raised the issue that GM sales, weak as they are, may even be weaker; he suggests that GM may be getting artificial help from federal agencies, and maybe even state and local govts being pressured to buy GM cars. Obviously, if most of the cars they BUY have to be GMs, then most of the cars they auction off would be GMs.

    So let's take a look, and let the chips fall where they may. Look at your local govt surplus sales and post a link to your state's vehicle auctions. Are many of the auction vehicles later model GMs? Say, 2009 or later?

    If not many GMs are being sold, then we can agree the accusation of pressure from the Obama Administration seems to be unfounded. But if there are a lot of GMs, or better yet, MOSTLY GMs, then I'm going to have to believe the poster.
