Well IMHO, GM is going slowly bankrupt, and Ford...well fords just suck anyways...so I'm thinking that GM needs Ford for financial security and Ford needs GM because...well...the Ford Motor Company is lame, and needs psychological support :P
Oh well, i think its a good thing. I think yeah, GM has alot of technology and such, and ford needs help...although, im still not too hot on the whole Cadillac Town Car thing
Actually, it'* quite the other way around. GM has actually made some money these past months, while ford has been going deeper into depression.
