FloridaBeachBum.. (06/05/2009) SP, I 'stumbled' across your blog a while back but have never commented until I read your latest.
I am SURE I have seen 'The BountyHunter' at Golds in Jacksonville, Florida. Do you work out there also?
I go there a lot these days, got laid off a while back but have been getting interviews lately...dontask 0 (06/05/2009) Thank you for writing about GM's gradual descent. I feel like mourning a close relative. In the late 80's and early 90's more GM cars were swiped from employee parking lots then any other vehicles. According to the local cops even a pimply dyslexic young teenager could pop the locks with easy.
When companies only concentrate on hires who 'fit' they also block good people with new ideas to become part of their organization. SouthernProgrammer (06/06/2009)
dontask - Glad you liked it. GM has disappointed me with their build quality. I used to own a 97 Suburban that I bought in 99 from the original owner who was a retired GM dealership owner. The car had never been abused and was garge kept when I bought it and during the time I owned it. The number of repairs needed by that car was astounding and included two transmissions, a complete rear end, a complete AC system, water pump, two starters, an alternator, computer system, and more. The car was a complete lemon. When I finally sold it, the door locks had begun locking/unlocking themselves constantly when I drove the car in the rain. I would drive the car with the doors locking and unlocking as if the car was possessed. I would be hard pressed to drive another GM vehicle.
BeachBum - I do work out at Golds but not the one in Jacksonville. The Bounty Hunter may have the membership type that allows him access to all gyms so you may have seen him. He is hard to miss..

SP-- This is one of the reasons I will never buy an american car, and never have! I have a 16 year old mazda right now that, despite its age, still keeps right on ticking in spite of the wear and tear. Now, I do have to keep up on maintenance and I do have to make the occasional wear'n'tear repair (like when the exhaust rusted apart and when the seat belt died... and my coolant hose blew). However, it has really not been expensive to fix, and I'm hoping to get 20 years out of the poor little thing, I'm trying to get historic tags for it ^_^.
My next car will probably be a honda or a nissan---unless Mazda really does start production on the Kabura!
