second follow up on this thread.
In case you didn't see it, there is an article on B1 of the
Tuesday Feb 27th, 07 USAToday about how Ford stopped paying their
supplier of diesel truck engines [International Truck and Engine]
and the ingrate supplier stopped shipping engines last Thursday.
As one of the few remaining good sellers Ford has is their diesel
pick-ups this as not a smart move, however it may well help
Chrysler. FWIW, ITE closed their Ford engine plant on Monday and
laid off 1,200 workers. Both FoMoCo and ITE are JIT so there is
nothing in the pipelines or warehouses.
so Ford is now definitly on the way out ...
F150 and Mustang are the only ones at all I see on the road.
