I fully understand that this was intended with humor in mind.

The only problem is that, for me anyway, the joke sorta falls flat.

Speaking only for myself, the murder of the Plymouth Division left a sore spot in my heart that never fully healed and didn't need to be messed with.

Besides...You're WAY too early for April Fool's Day anyway!

Yes..it was tounge in cheek....but with the high prices of cars today I think there is a market
for good USEFULL cheap cars.
I fully agree with your argument in favor of a low(er) cost "mainstream" type brand. Plymouth would have been perfect for this, except it would cost WAY too much in money, time, and effort to revive it.

While not a perfect solution....... I have made the suggestion here more than once that it might be worth a try to reintroduce the OPEL brand to North America. After decades of decline and mismanagement at the hands of GM, Ma STLA has been doing a great job at revitalizing the brand's fortunes in Europe.

I think it would be much easier to reintroduce a European (especially German) brand to North America than to...in essence...start from scratch with a revival of Plymouth.

Let's face the harsh truth. Ma STLA already has her hands FULL with brands crying out for attention......cough!......Lancia......cough!...

I don't think there's ANY appetite on the Company's part to go around creating more brands! ;)

Opel can't come to the USA. Part of the GM sales deal.
I actually wasn't aware of that stipulation in the deal GM made with Groupe PSA.

Thanks for clueing me in. It sure does sound like something GM would do.

I would love to say what I really think about GM in general, but then I would have to wash my mouth out with soap for using such terms.
So....I'll say it this way instead:
Silly of me to ask, but when has that ever stopped me before?
I'm going to assume that this stipulation applies to Vauxhall also?
