Yes, but only because they'll use the excess production capacity to build more SUVs.
If that is true, it's quite disturbing news. I loathe SUVs.
I'm saddened by this news. I always loved Firebirds even though I never wanted to shell out the money for one and the insurance premiums.
As for the bad rap about the characters--hey, I've seen space operas that put their emphasis on human personalities and relationships. They're called "Star Trek" movies. Give me transparent underwater cities and vast hollow senatorial spheres any day. --Roger Ebert on The Phantom Menace
