QUOTE OF THE DAY....From Emile Earles, a Cadillac owner in West Point, Georgia, on buying American:

"You can only be patriotic until you can't afford it anymore."

And this riposte from Eddie Striblin, a salesman at the local GM dealership:

"Let me ask you a question: You ever heard of anybody braggin' on a '57 Honda?"

That's the American car industry in a nutshell, isn't it?
