    "Unfortunately, when GM doubles or triples its profits it's going to answer to the UAW who will claim credit for all of it and demand a strong boost to compensation."

    You may be right web, but I would hate to see that happen. Kind of a IQ test for the UAW. The last time that happened it was the precursor of a massive move to low cost countries. Thousands of US GM jobs were lost not to mention the suppliers that went with them. Families went from stable middle class livings to being unemployed. Wages were replaced by unemployment benefits. Profits were replaced by bankruptcy.

    The UAW has a new group to work with these days, without all of the history that some of us have with them. It would be too bad to poison this group as well. The GM reaction to such a money grab is predictable. They will flee the UAW and the US to environments more friendly to business. Then you will hear all the injured parties try to make big business the bad guy when in fact, they were the ones that set the process in motion. Politicians will make threats to tax companies that outsource (a stupid, unenforceable threat to begin with).

    Things are not always as they seem.

    "wngr, welcome back. I was worried something happened. I'm still here but this board has been trashed."

    Thanks for your concern Jeye, but I'm fine. Just been very busy and lost interest in the board. I totally agree with your comments about the board being trashed. Very sobering that some of these people are walking the streets amongst us.

    "Hi Winger. Happy holidays. "
    Thanks Bunkie.

    " I have my doubts about the Colorado. Maybe it will outlast
    the previous Colorado. I did have an S-10 for many years that served me very well."
    We'll see. It makes sense to me that this segment might develop well. Cheaper than a big truck, and I remember that these smaller trucks were very popular with college students at one time. Time will tell.

    "Motor Trend named the Chevrolet Colorado its 2015 Truck of the Year, edging out both the Ford Transit van and the 2015 Ford F-150."

    "That the nine judges unanimously chose the Colorado will surprise some truck enthusiasts given the anticipation that has built around Ford's aluminum body F-150 that is just arriving at dealerships this month."

    Hello all! Just thought I would pop in and say hi.
