ideas

Perhaps we could hire a 7-year-old to hack into their site and rip-off all their tasty eco tidbits.

Do you think their ideas are worth much more than ours?

No, probably not, except it's fun to hack, and 7 year olds can't be tried as adults for cyber-crime, I think.

Besides, if a 7 Year-Old can hack Ford's systems, he's probably got a job waiting for him somewhere special anyway once he's "of age". (CIA loves hackers.)

No, I don't even think they even try to come up with new ideas, other then lets see what the Asian/European car manufacturers are doing and change it a little and call it ours.

This thread has turned to complete ****.

The engineers know damn well how to deliver economical vehicles. The thing is, engineering doesn't get to build whatever they want. Mgmt holds those reins.

Have you worked on any of the American cars lately? They can't even engineer something poorly. If management is holding the reins that tightly their doing a great job at destroying the American Automobile.

Maybe that's their goal... they sold their soul to some other country that will soon own the automobile market. The "C" word.

The ideas are already there. They're just trying to convince the car buying public that they're being responsive and innovative. The problem is, the American car buying public has proven itself to be pretty gullible.

Hummer, Escalade, Navigator, Expedition, etc...
