How many lives does Chrysler Have? At least 4 that I know of. (READ MY PLAN BELOW IACCOA)
I have several close friends, dealers, and factory folks hanging in the balance as Chrysler is on the Block once more. Please join me in prayer as so many have invested much of their professional lives in this Great American Company. Pray that God would direct this next Chapter for Chrysler to His Glory and aide so many jobs in danger.
Why doesn’t Chrysler take a lesson from history? How did Iacocca do it? You may think it was the Government bailout, but good, simple, inexpensive fuel efficient K cars was the real answer then, as it was in Henry Fords day with the model T, and it would be today!
Think about a $9,000 car that would seat 5 and get 30mpg. It doesn’t have to have power anything, it may not even need an automatic transmission, it does need air conditioning. The K car was the answer for Iacocca, the model T for Henry Ford. Henry’s Only came in Black the idea was simple no options not even color, options cost huge money in the manf. process, one color is fine, Ford has gotten upto 15 shades of red as of 2010. WHY?????
Right now in the current economy, not unlike the economy of the late seventies the American people needed good efficient reliable, cheap cars….NOT another Crossover, SUV or flavor of the week. Ford did it with cars; GM did it with cars the Olds Cutlass, Honda and Toyota Civics, Accords, and Camrys. 5 or 6 passenger cars!!!!
If Chrysler could acquire a leader with the vision to build an inexpensive 5 passenger, simple, simple, simple CAR that got better than average gas mileage for a price that people wouldn’t have to go into further debt to buy……. THAT WOULD SAVE CHRYSLER!!! True they may have some help from the Fed like Iacocca to get it to market but it can still be done. As always the secret is trying to help people with their transportation needs, not wants, NOT MAKE A HUGE PROFIT SELLING BIG INEFFICENT VEHILCES.
Detroit, take a basic auto history lesson!

Happy 5769…. Yes happy new year.
What’s cool in the 5769 Models
Happy 5769…. yes happy new year.
In the car business we like the Jews celebrate our New Years in late September.
Rosh Ha-Shanah or as the Bible refers to it as the Feast of Trumpets, was Tuesday and perhaps Wednesday this last week.
And this is cool, Jewish Tradition is that, The Rosh Ha-Shana holiday commemorates the completion of the 6th day of creation. So their calendars have this as the year 5769
So instead of getting excited about the 2009 models, I’m thinking we might actually be more accurate in saying the 5769 models…
So happy new year everyone and “Leshanah tovah tikatevu,” which means, “May you be
inscribed (written down in the huge book) for a good year. “Hebrew Legends tell that a huge book containing every person’s name is opened in heaven during the New Year holidays. Their past deeds are judged and their fate for the next year is decided and written down in the book. That’s why, when the Jews send greeting cards to each other before Rosh Ha-Shanah, the card often says, “Leshanah tovah tikatevu,” which means, “May you be inscribed (written down in the huge book) for a good year.

· Like when jumping a battery don’t connect the negative cable to the negative battery terminal… why you ask, I’ll bet a passenger on the Hindenburg would have your answer, but were offering today without so much bang for your buck
· · How about, don’t drive with your hand resting on the gear shift lever or stick shift especially not a manual or straight drive stick. That may be the most expensive arm rest you ever buy. I’ll bet you may be wondering why
· Everyone needs to know the one you have learned the hard way don’t be shy we’ve all blown it.
· Maybe you’ve been told don’t turn your air conditioner on over 35mph is that true or not, we need a few myths as well.
