Get a grip

The economy is in the crapper, layoffs are rampant, house prices are tumbling, RRSPs are tanking along with the stock market, fixed income seniors face an uncertain future and the Big Three automakers have their hands out for billions in bailout funds.

And there, on Page 35 of Thursday's Toronto Sun, is a car dealership ad for a 2009 Dodge Viper V01 10 Special Edition at a "Holiday Gift Price" of $91,371.

Well ho, ho ho. Is it just us, or does that highlight one of the major flaws of the North American car market?

We'd level the Big Three and put all of the workers on assembly lines producing nothing but economical, energy-efficient vehicles that are comfortable, safe and do the speed limit.

The ZENN, perhaps, suggests a TSF reader?

  1. Perhaps like the Zenn car being built in Quebec? Legal in the USA but not in Canada. If this little company can develop and build a car like this, why can't the Big 3?
