A tick over 13.0 sec. and you're through the quarter-mile. It's a rush, of course, but not overly dramatic. Try the same thing with this pair's predecessors of 1970 or so and you'll find yourself in a bit of a wrestling match. Ain't progress wonderful? Maybe yes, and maybe sometimes it's fun to wrestle."

Problem is, people will assume GM will do the same thing if they go into Ch 11. Goodbye domestic auto industry. They'll go into Ch 7 in no time.

I wouldn't have bought anything Saleen related before just because it was way overpriced.

But did they say they wouldn't? This was the one thing they were worried people would think they'd do. They should use this as an example and make an outright pact with the public that all warranties will be honored pre, during, and post bankrupcy. No exceptions.

The last part basically saying "we're bending over for you, because we care."

I think the public could get behind that kind of self sacrifice..no pun intended.
