  1. Exactly. As long as they feel they need the extra cash, they won't be paying a dividend. Best I can tell, dividends can run into the billions.
  2. Just a guess on my part, but I don't see Ford resuming its dividend until they are profitable for several quarters. Maybe early 2022? Again, just s guess.
  3. Of course some people will pop the $112,500 for this vehicle. Allow me to hop on my soapbox, but I view this as a wasted opportunity. Why did GM management decide to engineer a designer BEV when they could have spent the same time and money developing something more useful, like a BEV Silverado priced in the mid-$50,000 range. Think about it, in the time it took to develop this BEV Hummer, they could have developed a BEV Silverado that would have beat Ford to the market by two years and also come in before the Tesla Cyber truck. GM could have owned the BEV pickup market. BTW, I’d be just as critical if Ford developed a BEV toy-for-the-rich. That’d be a slap in the face to the legacy of a company known for the Model T.
  4. The $80K version will be available spring 2024. It's October, 2020. Do the math.
  5. I'd be complaining. My opinion of course, but I have absolutely no use for designer vehicles for the wealthy. Give me a BEV "Model T," something designed for the common man.
  6. Ha! Totally forgot about the Bolt, which shows you the impact it's made on me.
  7. No question that this Hummer is an impressive vehicle. I just question why GM spent the time and money engineering a BEV designer-truck for the wealthy. I wish they would have spent their considerable engineering expertise by designing a BEV that cost $30,000 that everybody could afford to buy.
  8. I'm hardly in the market for a BEV SUV, but if I were, why would I pay $112,500 for a EV Hummer when I can buy a EV Rivian for $70,000? GM, I don't get your pricing.
  9. Only a $112,500. An EV for the masses (sarcasm).

    Tesla finally admits model 3 design flaw

    Strange, kinda funny, and weird. How exactly does a bumper fall off in the rain?
  11. It is the X plan. Must own at least 100 shares for a minimum of 6 months.
  12. Yep, Bronco Sport start of production is October 26th.

    2021 Honda Ridgeline

    I know of one, a guy a few miles away owns one, but other than that, Ridgelines are non-existent in this part of northern Michigan.

    What do you guys think of the new Corvette?

    I will say the 1963 Sting Ray knocked my eyes out when I first saw it. Blasphemy, for a kid whose old man worked for Ford. Even today I marvel how attractive that car is.
