Ok,

  Why all this buzz about the fiat making motors for chrysler?
Are we supposed to connect the chrysler comeback with the
upswing iacocca did with chrysler and think better economy thoughts?

Every 7-9 years they keep trying to scare us into WHATEVER and they
scream *ECONOMY* *RECESSION* *DOOM* *GLOOM* but it always
comes back around with some higher prices and EASIER CREDIT.

Would it be so bad if fiat made a chrysler engine?  Mitsubishi has
already been making their engines for years.

And FIAT in the 1976 guinness book of world records had a carbuerated
spyder on a closed left turn circle track go 900+ miles on a SINGLE
GALLON OF GAS!!!  I always thought maybe hussein had him snipered
on the way into the patent office (the guy who invented that carbuerator)..

... maybe hes just been holding it as his retirement plan.

Shit in the 80s with EFI we broke the 1200 mpg mark in a car... WTF GIVES?@?@

Those records are broken with extremely light, aerodynamic cars that would fail numerous highway safety tests.

Every year, they add more passive safety features and take off more active safety features. I am safer in a car that handles well, not a mammoth tank with 5 feet of crumple on all sides.

Anyway, more weight = more rolling resistance = more work from the engine = more fuel consumption.

Maybe Fiat has changed, but if it's anything like the Fiat cars that I knew from the 70s then death would have been a better fate for Chrysler.

I just think that we should at least be in the 70 mpg range if we hit 1000+ at one point...   

gas mileage conspiracy theory.

So what one may infer from your statement is that given the choice between breaking the veil of secrecy and announcing a 70+ MPG production car to the world and declaring bankruptcy, Chrysler chose the latter.

Yeah, sounds perfectly plausible... Roll Eyes

No im suggesting that anyone that came up with an idea
for better gas mileage was paid off by the gas guys.   Jackoff

 why is fiat still around if they had that world record and
if everyone knows they got shitty gas mileage and had shoddy
cars???

 people with great ideas get bought out and live happy lives to never
do certain things in certain industries ever again.

 Idea...
