    Good question - but it would depend of how the various companies are structured and tied together especially over the pond !

    Plus how they are registered with associated assets etc.....esp. in the UK

                Your uncle can tell himself what he likes - PS Ferrari are owned by Fiat, which until May 2005 was partially owned by GM



                Seen that - defintely a shocker but then Mercedes and BMW are discussing engine sharing in future models to cut costs - never thought I would see that either

                    the American government would never allow GM to go under, so i think a state handout will be heading their way
                    maybe they will be told to sell some assets such as Vauxhall

                    could VX stand on its on own 2 feet?

                          not really,finance will be underwritten seperatly
                          so would still be owed
                          same as if northern rock went to the wall,the mortgage 'book' would be bought and debts still owed

                            It will mean that Astra VXR's can be had for 2-4K, so we can get some cheap trackday cars maybe 5K for white one if the stickers are taken of.

                              All of us on here should buy them out. Then we might actually get decent dealer and VX customer service.
