Well that's not really a good argument, since there isn't a carmaker out there that has as many car lines as GM. US: Buick, Cadillac, Olds, Pontiac, GMC, Chevy, Hummer, Saturn Europe: Opel, SAAB, Fiat, Vauxhall Asia/Aus: Holden, Fuji/Subaru, Isuzu, Suzuki GM is has historically been bad about sharing model lines.... But Chrysler has always been been far worse. And Toyota is pretty bad with the Camry/ES300 line. -- Marc Escuro mgescuronopsam.com "...when all hope is gone, you know sad songs say so much..."
