Epic Video Rant: A Look Back To 5 Years Ago This Week


Car Pro Show

Five years ago, on the air, I talked about the carmakers coming off the best year ever for sales and profits, yet were investing millions in other areas besides building great cars. I likened it to my days as the Ford National Dealer Chairman when Fordís then-CEO wasted billions.

Now 5 years later, GM says theyíll invest 27 million dollars in electric vehicles in the next four years, and in that same time period, Ford will invest 29 million dollars.

The lesson: Some things just never change with the automakers.
