    And now......steering the thread back on course:p:D:)

    This tasty little treat from "The Detroit News" has implications for both FCA and VAG.

    Milk Bags only brings to mind pictures of women..........forget it.

    Personally, I do not think GM wants anything right now because it would look silly to drop Opel and pick up Fiat. I believe GM when it says it wants to focus inward for a while to improve and then may return to Europe down the road.

    VAG is too busy with its diesel problems and now its partnership with Tata. I think Tata can provide almost everything VAG needs just as well as what FCA could offer except a stronger foothold in NAFTA.

    This is why I believe it is likely that someone who wants a foothold in NAFTA could pry Chrysler-Dodge-Ram away from FCA, leaving them with Jeep, Alfa, Lancia and Maserati.

    That's what I'm thinking.

    Irrespective what is said, money, not so much capacity or distribution ( important as those elements are ) is more a root-level need. Consolidation is there, too, but lesser so.

    Of course, the Chinese are best funded and strongest right now. Their desires to enter the NAFTA market are larger than anyone else out there.

    But, there are plenty of others who would like a slice of the NAFTA market. Even a long shot, like Toyota, would buy Chrysler-Dodge-Ram just to get their hands on Ram........the additional volume would help them remain as one of the Big 3 Worldwide.
