Here's the latest, released June 29th. Source: Ford Motor Company.

Statement by David Snyder, Executive Director, Asia-Pacific New
Business Development, on Ford Motor Company's Successful First
Round Bid for Daewoo Motor

Ford Motor Company is very pleased with its selection as sole preferred
bidder in the second round negotiation process for Daewoo Motor. We
respect the decision of the Corporate Restructuring Committee and believe
that our selection as sole bidder will expedite the process of negotiations.
We will now move forward into the second round of due diligence and
negotiations with the Corporate Restructuring Committee where we will
receive additional information about Daewoo.

We appreciate the professionalism and openness with which the Corporate
Restructuring Committee has conducted the first round of due diligence and
are fully aware of the importance of the decisions that it has faced in
deciding what is best for Daewoo, for the Korean auto industry and for
Korea itself. Working with the Committee, we will seek the best way for all
concerned - the employees, the suppliers, the creditors and the customers -
to normalize operations at Daewoo at the earliest possible date.

Daewoo is a great company with great people and a bright future. As we
indicated in our proposal to the Corporate Restructuring Committee, our
vision is to establish a strategic partnership with Daewoo. Ford is the
world's most profitable automaker, and has a great deal of experience with
its wide range of strong global brands and overseas partnerships, as well as
a long history in Korea. We are here to understand all that we can about
Daewoo and ensure that it remains a source of national pride as well as a
successful global brand - just as we have done with our many other global
brands and affiliations around the world.

There's some major differences between a long bed and a long bed crew cab.
For myself I have no purpose for a dually crew cab so I would say no, but then
technically I don't NEED an F150 either ... its a personal choice thing. You
get used to the longer bigger truck, but it will take some time and patience,
and you will always need patience to find a parking spot ...

Yes, the bigger trucks are nice... I own a 2000 f350 sd with a 6" lift and
boggers. Its fun and all till the day I took it to indianapolis for a
week.... Talk about some headaches.... try parking in downtown indy without
being able to use parking decks....... I think it depends on where you are
going to be using this truck...

Jeg's? The price is attractive for hyperutectic pistons etc. Not trying to
build a monster; just a bump above stock and (hopefully!) low-dollar.

The kits look pretty good. I have had better luck with Summit than Jegs myself, but have spent a few grand with each of them.

Surprising.. GM had them in bed for a while for some of the "GEO" nameplate.
But then "KIA" was the actual manufacturer of the Ford 'Festiva' (arguably one
of the best cars I've owned overall.)

Well FWIW my old Festiva was going 60 MPH when an oncoming '80s T-bird decided
to make an abrupt left turn in front of Lynn. Unfortunately she was the type
to not fasten the lap belt so her knee contacted the lower dash panel but
overall given the vast damage to the front of the car (and the T-bird front..
still have a 'broken winged' T-bird emblem as a memento..) I'd say that *some*
of the beer-can cars have a good degree of survivability in higher speed
incidents.

If by 'minis' you mean lowered etc. I agree whole-heartedly! Who knows what
modifications were made; but a stock small truck... well the only beef I have
about the Mazda is the lack of a head restraint. I picture my whiplashing
noggin' taking out the sliding rear window in a rear-ender. (Ouch!)

> Driving an F-350 has me a tad Spoiled I think....

A co-worker keeps vowing to buy a dump truck for a daily driver. "I swear
Officer he just pulled out in front of me... musta been suicidal"

I feel safe in the '93 Capri (Tiny thing and convertible), but in it I'm
relying on defensive driving, handling, acceleration and braking to avoid
incidents. The '85 B-II and the '79 LTD have mass on their side (and
visibility!) but leave a lot to be desired in avoidance by comparison
requiring more thought to be defensive. Maybe years of motorcycle riding have
taught me to always be looking for whatever bone-headed move the vehicles
around me might do and plan accordingly, but that same technique has saved my
A.. err.. hide more than once. (And failing to do so has my right leg
occasionally aching depending on the weather conditions..)

Those Festiva's can take a beating ... a friend of mine got hit broad side,
he was basically stopped, the other guy doing near 60 .. he walked away with
some cuts from the flying glass... ironically it too may have been a t-bird
that hit him, though its been a while so I don't remember for sure.

The Fiesta's my cousins had (they were brother and sister with identical Fiestas,
isn't that sick?) ...those things lasted forever too ... I think Troy finally
ditched his 'cause the tires rotted off and it wasn't worth putting them back
on, I think their mom took Karmin's and promptly blew the motor when she was
stuck on some ice or something ... but for livability they were great since
they'd both bounced off of trees and other solid objects and kept going ...
we're talkin back roads of gravel at 60+ mph every day too.

I dunno, I've never ridden a cycle, but have the same feelings/expereinces you
do ... when I first got my truck after an 82 GT Mustang, I felt like I could
see for miles farther and wondered why I'd done so much stupid stuff when I
couldn't really see as far as I thought I could (part of being young I guess)
... then I realized the Mustang was actually much quicker and more agile, so
if I had mis-judged it usually had enough reserve to get me out of whatever
the problem was. Now I've got a 96 GT that's quite a ways from stock and MUCH
quicker, Much more agile, and can stop MUCH faster than the 82 could ever dream
of. I can't see that far in the gently rolling land all the time, but its definitely
got the agility thing going for it ... that combined with some time autocrossing
(had a great time this weekend at my favorite track) gives me something of an
advantage when it comes to reacting to stupid people ... three people pulled
out in front of me the other day, all were easily avoided because I could see,
I could turn, and I coudl accelerate... actually didn't need to accelerate,
but the loud pipes drive the point home that they screwed up, and its fun :)
