Remember, that's when Mercedes changed their concerns from building fantastic cars to making money. What they saw in the Chrysler group was the chance to open their market to lower ones so they can appeal more to the mass market and create more profits from this.II kings 920 said:One has to ask again, why did D-B pay $36 billion for Chryco to start with? WTF were they thinking? I knew it would be a disaster when I heard the first word of this idiotic plan.
This was almost as bad as idiot Ford paying $10 billion for Jaguar and they have yet to make a single penny of profit. At least Chrysler was profitable (no where close to offset loss of equity) for D-B but they will likely get only $14-18 billion, in other words they a very idiotic decision.
Chrysler was founded in 1923....so I think they are all twisting in their graves.BenzzBoyy33 said:I wonder if any of the original Chrysler company founders are still leading that company, and how they feel about this.
