Ford Takes a Shot at Chrysler and GM for Receiving Bailout Money

With talk of the US economy going South again, things aren’t particularly rosy right now, but for the automotive industry, 2009 was the worst year in recent history. Banks were already getting their cash from above, but when Chrysler and General Motors just couldn’t keep their head above water, the government had no choice but to step in and bail them out as well.
Ford didn’t declare bankruptcy, but they did borrow a bit of money which they quickly gave back if we remember correctly. The Blue Oval also stood beside its fallen brothers in congress, but the camaraderie has become a bit bitter.

A short commercial was released that explains how taking chances and paying for your mistakes is the American way. They are trying to suggest that buying American also implies buying from a company that didn’t receive help from the government to stay afloat.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
