Doesnt' even know what the hell he is even talking about if they do that GM will be much worse off then they already off.. Hummer and Saab can go but it would be stupid to cut the rest as jobs dealership and a whole lot of things would be affected.. GM makes MUCH better products than toyota in my mind ... Gm and FORD we'll be okay they're making better products then they ever have..

Just for your next spelling bee... a subtle hint, its "joking".

Note the vowel after the constanant, negating the need for an "e".



Please see the English teacher after class

Ach du lieber, it's bad enough trying to decipher the posts the first time around, now I gotta read them again? Talk about overkill.

Fortune article: GM has done a fine job killing off SAAB without any help from others. Once a viable product, SAAB has sunk to a new low under GM ownership. There is over a 18 month supply of new 2006 and even some 2004 and 2005 SAAB's sitting on dealer and holding lots throughout the US, the worst backlog in the industry.

I call BS on this one.

You don't know how to spell. You luck out now and again.

Big350,

I've called him out numerous times for any sort of proof on any of his "facts" and it just seems he finds a hole to crawl in and hide.

I wouldn't waste your breath. If he can prove that he can spell it just proves the lack of respect he has for his fellow "Ford" members.

Now that's funny right there!

Let me help.

You're, not your. You're is a contraction...oops sorry...con...track...shun... of YOU ARE.

YOUR is generally thought of and used as a modifier to show possession.

~~~~
what's, not whats. You forgot the apostrophe. Like "You're", it also is a contraction. It contracts the words; what is.

~~~~
Few other things... The A in anyways should be capitalized. It begins the sentence.

"Mr." should have a period behind the letter "r".

The comma should be behind the word anyways, not Mr. Super Cool.

There should be a space between sentences and new sentences begin with a capital letter.

And your second sentence should end in a question mark as the sentence is an interrogative sentence.


Signed,

A homeschooling father.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GM really does need to take a look at their various brands and see how they can position them better in the market. They could be doing better than they are now, that's for sure!

This is a kick (****) thread. Y'all getting excited over how nobody can spell 'cept NumberDummy 'n monsta'. Maybe Ford_Six but the short sentence wasn't long enough to tell.

Chill! (Or whatever the current *word* is, a teen hasn't lived here in a long while.)

GM can't build krap compared to Toyo. And my Ford Co. better get with it in both styling and function! I'm tired of car-looking pickemups and Tritons blowing plugs.

K, Flame me!!

C'mon Rex, you know I can spell. I don't even use the spell check function, it just asks me what all the IM abbreviations are.

What the hecks any of that rambling got to do with the original thread subject or 93RangerXL4x2's inability to type out the English language properly?

Anyway...GM can't build "krap"? (uh...Crap ) compared to Toyota?!? Since I own a GM product I can say that your statement is most certainly unfounded and untrue. GM builds ALL KINDS of crap!! Funny looking crap, too! 'Cept for the Z06. That buggah is a beauty!

What? You no like the new Super Duty's front end??

Tritons still blow plugs? I thought they took care of that in 02...

What is the FTE Folding Team?

Waaay off topic.
