Brock Yates Confirms It....
I love saying I told you so. I love it. I have been talking about this for months now on this page, and have gotten little feedback to such a crucial issue. Now, it's out there just a little bit more, and, hopefully someone will pick up on it and do something about it (AHEM! GM, FoMoCo, and DamChry).
In the latest November 2005 issue of Car and Driver ole Brock Yates rambles on about the downward spiral of the "Big Three" (or should we say diminishing three?). Market share continues to dwindle, and it doesn't look to pretty. Experts (Brock, of course, himself being one) predict that market share for the "Big Three" will fall below 50% in 2006. Considering that in the 1970s that GM ALONE controlled over 50% of the market, this is looking pretty grim.
Brock in his infinite wisdom did offer up a couple of solutions, but in my opinion missed the most important one.... BUILD A PRODUCT PEOPLE WANT TO F&&*%NG BUY!
Thank you, I'm here all week.
