    I love my 96 Toyota Camry. Sure it's not exactly 'cool' for a 20 year old to be driving such a car, but it's most certainly 'cool' to save the cash when compared the other college students with their soupped up dodges, gm's and fords... All of my cars/trucks will be Honda or Toyota.

    Everything about beaters makes sense, IMO. No having depreciation the minute you drive off the lot. No car payments, lower insurance, tabs cost less. Wins all the way around, if you get a good one.

    Yes, if you get a good one, and if you stick with Toyota, Honda, or Subaru, you're likely to get a good one. I had a Honda Accord that went for nearly 200,000 miles before I got the new car itch and sold it to buy a new Chevy Impala. The family that bought the old Honda had fewer problems than I had with the new Chevy, and that was before GM became Government Motors. Now, I have a Camry and a Tundra, and don't go in for "unschedualed maintenance" any longer.

    GM should have been allowed to follow Studebaker, Rambler, and DeSoto. Do you miss those brands? Do you wish the goverment had bought them to keep them from going bankrupt?

    How about Stutz Bearcat? Even I'm not old enough to remember those.

    I was born in '58, so I got nothing. I have read bits and pieces about what happened.

    What happened to Studebaker, Nash, and DeSoto is that they lost out to better competitors, and went under. Probably the same happened to Stutz Bearcat as well. The difference is that the taxpayers didn't try to bail them out, then borrow a few tons of money from China to pay the tab.

    Oddly enough Buick is the #2 car brand in China.

    No kidding? Wow! Maybe Uncle Sam will get his (our) money back out of the GM bailout after all.

    I don't know. Maybe they're mirrors, or maybe they're fans. Government motors air conditioning.
