Am I the only one who noticed GM has $20B in the bank? Between that, and their strong engineering capabilities, they have the ability to withstand some extreme economic punishment, as well as evolve themselves into the future. Like Ford, they desperately need opposed engine technology. They have spoken with Acates Power. I have no idea if they have a contract. If they could produce a gas truck that could get 25~30mpg while producing 1/10 the emissions of present vehicles, they would have some breathing room for a while. I don't own GM but I have looked longingly at this company for the last couple of years.
