    Ford Motor Co. demonstrated the growing strength of the U.S. auto industry Tuesday by posting a third-quarter profit of $1.7 billion, a 69% jump over the same period a year ago and surpassing a previous record set in 1997.

    The automaker — which unlike General Motors Co. and Chrysler Group avoided bankruptcy reorganization last year — benefitted from both cost cutting and top-line performance, gaining U.S. market share and selling vehicles for higher prices.

    "Overall, we are doing better than we expected through the first nine months of the year," said Alan Mulally, Ford's chief executive, "and we expect to deliver solid profits in the fourth quarter and for the full year."

    From the link:
    Well if they didn't take a bailout from the government then who did they borrow from? I must have missed this.

    Ford has done well and without being bailed out with taxpayer money.

    Good for the Company and Kudo's to the CEO.

    Frankly I could give a rats ass who they borrowed from. Thats their business.
