Jeff - how much of that is EASY comps?

"Last October was not the strongest month for the industry," Ford sales analyst George Pipas said Wednesday. "Sales were down double-digit for the industry. Sales were down double-digit for Ford."

"GM did have a great month, there's no denying it, but they're still down 9 percent for the year to date," said Rebecca Lindland, analyst at forecasting firm Global Insight.

As far as I am concerned this is BS.
I said the same thing going into hard comps.

Let's see what GM does from here.
I suggest they will suck.
The Suckiness is a relative number.
Compared to who?

GM put its plan into place far better than Ford did.
There is no denial on that.
The question is: is that good enough?
On that there is no real data.

I remain steadfast a recession is coming.
In fact I will now say it will be here within 6 months.

Let's see how autos do in that environment now that all the tough comparisons and all the weak comparisons have been wiped out.

GM will rise or sink on that.
