The Big Three lost our auto industry in the factories where the cars were built. The loss of market share to foreign car companies had nothin to do with fuel efficiency or design, and everything to do with the low quality that we produced in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. An entire generation of car buyers lost confidence and trust in Detroit, and that open opened the door for the imports. Now they want our tax money to bail them out of decades of bad management.
