    No comment. Just good news. Well, some people will think it's good news. Others may not care.

    This is intriguing enough to pull me back in.

    My guess: NASCAR in 2021.

    While we're at it, they revive DeSoto, Nash, Hudson, Rambler, Willys, Kaiser-Frazer, AMC, Eagle, Fargo, Imperial. ;)

    Or FCA buy Ford for small change,... just kidding.

    Or as GasAxe mentionned NASCAR, or what about the SCCA Trans-Am, the WRC rallye competition, 24 Hours of LeMans?

    Or maybe they'll go in an alliance with Peugeot or Renault. I wish I have SuperDuckie5000's crystal ball.

    Here's my list of ridiculous predictions:

    • Allpar website will now be in full 3D Virtual Reality
    • Chrysler brand finally getting a new vehicle, and it's an updated version of the AMC Gremlin
    • FCA to become a subsidiary of Russia's GAZ; Putin promises no meddling in US products but laughs when he says it.
    • FCA merging with Tesla; will be called FACT; US HQ moving to a state with legal recreational marijuana to keep Elon Musk happy
    • Manley out, Bob Eaton in as FCA CEO
    • Exciting merger of Allpar with a bulletin board that follows the Kardashian family
    • New Allpar video game coming to Sony Playstation®. Players use a laser to blast any dollars going to Alfa Romeo.
    • Return of the Chrysler Cordoba with Rich Corinthian Leather®
    • Viper coming back; to save costs new version will be based on the FIAT 500L

    And ...

    Bob Nixon, mainly, along with Richard Teague came up with the original Gremlin.

    Jeff Teague, Richard Teague's son*, came up with this Re-imagining of the Gremlin in 2008.

    Jeff Teague's Re-Do just might still hold water.

    The idea is not as far-fetched as one might suppose.

    And...for me, the icing on the cake would be that it would be an EV, using a CNG-fueled Fuel Cell!:)

    A BEV version would also be offered.

    I could use some good news, but then who couldn't? FCA, an individual brand or model, Allpar, or personal good news for Dave (might be the best of all??).

    Who honestly thinks bringing another brand into the fold would good news given how they can't keep up with the ones they have?

    i'm hoping for official confirmation of a Chrysler CUV. I'll probably be disappointed.

    Actually, it's Daylight Saving Time. With the time change in November it will go back to Daylight Standard Time.
