Really? So answer a simple two-part question: What was GM's market share in 1959, and what is it today?

Now a second question: who got the market share that GM lost, Ford & Chrysler? Or was it those Japanese, German, and now Korean companies that build smaller cars?

Humm... Frog boiling, anyone? Or am I the only one who remembers when $3/gal had people screaming & moaning about the end of western civilization?
