Oh, the humanity!

From Automotive Digest.com:

12) GM, Ford Alliance in the Cards?Situation
  • Lapham sees "arranged marriage" between Ford, GM as solution to current crisis
  • Creation of "powerhouse" would necessitate selloff of Ford's 4 European brands
  • Ford vs Chevy? Ford, all-America brand, Chevy foreign brand small-car competitor
  • Would have to ditch some or all of Lincoln, Mercury, Buick, Pontiac
Significance
  • Lapham recalls others mergers of 20th century, including Chrysler/American Motors
  • Lapham cites need to protect American supplier base to keep our defenses strong
  • Ford, GM together control less than 45% of US market--much stronger as team
  • Worldwide, shared platforms could work; domestically, too many brands
