    Ford to sell Aston Martin as part of restructuring. LVMH emerges as a likely buyer. It's quite smart of Ford to sell a division of theirs that's actually decent and making money.

    You mean DB9? Anyways, for is only looking at the possibility of a partial or full sale, and there at the moment no definite buyers, or interested buyers for that matter; anything said is just pure speculation on the part of the media (not like the media ever speculates about anything). http://www.nytimes.com/2006/08/31/bu...rtner=homepage Jon.

    No, I meant DB8. It's now called the AMV8.

    Well, it's been always called the "˜AM V8 Vantage' in production form, that's why I was confused. Either way it doesn't matter; you would think Ford would keep AM since they are one of the few divisions that actually make it money.

    TouchÃ[​IMG].

    By "˜Bold Moves' I think Ford is actually means "˜stupid moves'.

    Jon, I don't think you know how to properly use 'touchÃ[​IMG]'. This short clip (QuickTime) will explain.

    No, I know how to use it, but apparently you didn't understand why I used it since this is anything but a Bold Move. Now you get it?

    If LVMH buys it the prices will go up and they'll probably have Skoda make them.

    In which case it would just make AM, what? A VW?

    Jon, unless you were speaking on behalf of the Ford corporation that touchÃ[​IMG] was inappropriate. TouchÃ[​IMG] cannot be employed by a third person in a conversation. The phrase you were looking for is "Ooooh, burn!"

    In 10 years, American car manufacturers as we know them today, will cease to exist.
    So it'll all be Tuckers, DeLoreans and Homers?
    Berluti skin seats.

    Ok Kent. [​IMG] "˜Inappropriate', indeed.
