You see, Ford and GM are doing so poorly that we feel their future is questionable. In fact, they are doing so poorly (by that we mean low sales and the unlikely prospect of higher sales to come) we guess they will need to combine their companies to in order to make it. And instead of trying to find a non-trademarked word, they'll just use some initials. But rather than FGM (heh), they'll go with GMF. Unless we trademark it first!
The Auto Prophet also mentions something very interesting: the companies that make parts for GM and Ford are having a hard time, too.
