    Astute investors who've already cashed out have profited nicely while others continue the elevator ride.

    I will never own a GM product. They are crap as well as being sellouts to the government.

    Yeah I wish the other auto corporations had run their companies as well as ford did.

    Not all corporations are equally good.

    Not all are honest either.

    Good for them. Glad to see there are some out there that don't need or want the Govt to help them run their business for them.

    Good going Ford.
