Not THAT many years, though. Saturn is the new kid on the block when it comes to U.S. carmakers, churning out their first cars in 1990. Heck, they make Merkur (pronouced "mare-coor", according to Ford) look positively ancient. But only because they are. :)

Anyone remember the Merkur XR4Ti or the Merkur Scorpio? Horrid vehicles, just horrid.

When Greed catches up with you, which it always does it is a bad day for the little folks. I feel bad for them, but not for a poorly run company. I used to work for a clothing retailer for 23 years and they were in business for over 100.Bring on the new greedy investors and the company closed it's doors in 3 short years. I'm sure you have heard of Wilsons Leather. Mind you I received a pink slip and the ceo's took home million $ bonus checks. I am just lucky that my years of experience got me a better job.
Good luck to all the former Employees.

Clothing manufacturers were exported, just like car makers.

The Levi factory in Knoxville was exported by mayor Victor "Victoria" Ashe, GW Bush's Skull & Bones boytoy, promoted to ambassador of CIA death camps in Poland. I saw Ashe tell SeaRay Boats, "You'll pay any tax increase I tell you to pay! You can afford it!" SeaRay told Ash, "We'd rather not just move out of Knoxville and Tennessee, but USA, rather than pay double taxes for predatory annexation by the city."

Saturn is closing its factory in Tennessee, since GM closed Saturn.

Dictator Obama gave Chrysler to Fiat for ZERO DOLLARS, so Mafia Fiat can sell junk cars in USA.

Good, free market capitalism at work, without government intervention: dealerships can't carry their own weight, close 'em.

It does tend to show up the failings of the business model.

Trash cars / Too many retailers / Overcharged Maintenance / Crazy finance packages / etc

If the gov had of stayed out in the beginning, it never would have gotten that bad to begin with.

How does this effect you? Well let PirateCat esplain. The car dealerships bring in lots and lots of revenue to the city, county, state, and federal goverments called taxes. Hmmm where are they getting a new source of income. From your home by increasing property taxes and utilites. Guess what all those unused rooms hey you have rental property got to tax potential income. And if it is paid off you fall under unused income tax penalty. How much of a mortgage could you afford. Here is PirateCat's plan empty commercial buildings tear down. They'll be alot so employment and new companies form with a goverment tax break. The empty lots will go green. New companies doing urban renewal. Once the land is sold bam loan companies making money, new construction, and whatever new company starting up. Of course these needed resources will have to come from the Amazon displacing native tribes along with extincting the natural wet lands. And will have tanks in Iran to supply our black gold for our V-8 trucks. I think this solves everything myself.

This was WITH govt intervention. GM alone got $15-billion taxdollars from Obama in 2009, used to build factories in Brazil and Commie China.

But that's a drop in the bucket to Bush and Obama giving $14-trillion to the offshore banks and brokers in the past 6 months, under martial law by the private foreign "Federal" Reserve Bank.

Well at least GM will be able to shift it's carmaking to China, so no more US jobs to support buying those "American" cars made in China. Say, how much did China pay Obamination to become our Kenyan President? Think of the hilarity which will ensue when Obamination's memoirs say, yup I was born in Kenya, deal with it you dumb hick suckkas.
