    As bad as US sales were in February,

    Interesting how you claim to be totally sincere and then refer to GM's Volt which has yet to be produced . How about the 2010 Camaro which GM has over 16000 deposits to date ? How about the new 2010 Equinox with the all new body style that generates 100s of phone calls weekly ? Please dont patronize us with your ignorance scuby .

      Ignorance? You want to talk ignorance?
      You are stating PHONE CALLS as a metric for profitability. Does GM make money on phone calls? No, I don't think so.

      I referenced the Volt because GM has invested so much in it. And "deposits" of 16,000 for the Camaro is just sad. The Volt has more "deposits".

      So c'mon, lets be realistic here, do you think the Camaro will make GM profitable?

      Please don't patronize us with your stupidity and lies.

        At the end of the day, not sure it really matters now many Camaro order they get, or any other car. The problem is MUCH deeper than selling car. Of course, that is one of the issues, but profitability is not based on how many cars GM sells alone. It should be, look at Ford, the more they sell, the more they make, and Honda, and Toyota. GM seems to have issues beyond selling of cars that is putting them further into debt.
        Until those issues are resolved, no amount of cars will save them.
