Default Damiler Chrysler

as of last night Damiler Chrysler is for sale. and GM is looking to buy them. i found out today when a guy was ordering a transsmission for a dodge ram and the sales guy told him about it. it sounds like i sit a easdrop on peoples phone calls, but i have been working at my moms boyfriend's body shop for the past week. a little bit of proof http://www.canada.com/nationalpost/f...c848fa&rfp=dta

Magna: http://www.magna.com/magna/en/
they are working with Chrysler right now. they are bigger then all of GM and are probably going to buy it so they can keep going. If magna buys it there will not be as many job losses

I really hope they don't just trash the viper and work on the corvette, I'd like to see GM maybe improve the viper.

i liked the era when Chrysler owned Lamborghini, that gave birth to the viper in the first place.

i wouldn't like to see gm buy Chrysler, i'd like to see the two muscle car companies stay competitors
