Good point. I would jump on the chance to get experience from the best,
though, even if it means moving to Germany. I think it's a stupid move on
Chry's part also, but we can't change it now. I don't think Merc is the
Take-Over type. I know the other German Manufacturers that bought smaller
companies didn't change them, maybe we'll be saved. =) I gotta' agree
with you on the Gov't thing. If Ferd and Chebby were to merge, the shit
would hit the fan. Although, wasn't there a Chrysler/Chevy type joint
venture called AMC in the early 70's or something? I wasn't alive at the
time, so I'm a little hazy on the subject =) Too bad the company flopped,
probably coulda' come out with some good shit! Oh well lets keep our
fingers crossed =) Good Luck!!
