RVC, before you laugh toooo hard, inspite of ever increasing Chrysler sales for over the past three years...and personally I hope this trend continues for the next 3-4 years but only time will tell...are Chrysler sales as high as they were 12/13 years ago under American ownership? Not even close. Are current Chrysler sales as high as they were 14/15 years ago? Not even close. But then, as someone else stated this is 2013, not 1997.
