    Whoa

    Why kill yourself by buying an anchor of a company and tying it around your neck?

    And it will likely get past the regulatory hurdles due to this current government, unlike the failed 2011 merger between TMobile and ATT. Or the failed TMobile/Sprint merger in 2017.

    I thought I heard that even after the merger the new entity will be #3 behind Verizon and AT&T.

    Currently, Ford sells six sedans and coupes in North America: the Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, C-Max, Mustang and Taurus.
    Three of those are cars I'd never drive. The Fusion and Taurus are solid. The Mustang is the Mustang.

    My questions are:
    - What's McConaughy going to drive in Lincoln ads now (assuming the Lincoln sedans are gone with this also)?
    - What' Ford going to run for a car body in NASCAR?

    All the cars are imports anyway, save for the Taurus which is built in the same Chicago plant as the Explorer, and (if I recall from my post in the cars thread) some assembly of thr Fusion was in a Wayne assembly plant that will likely be re-tooled for use as assembly for the new Focus Hatchback. (The only car "saved" alongside the Mustang.)

    Lincoln may become, unintentionally, only luxury SUV's and pickups, unless they keep a sedan body platform that powers the Police Interceptor Sedan.


    Ford already runs the Mustang on the Busch Grand National... err Xfinity Series. Chevrolet eliminated the SS a year ago (it was it's own model, not a trim package for an Impala) and graduated the Camero to the Winston err Monster Energy Series for this season. Mustang would likely follow suit.

    They think the new T-Mobile company will be large enough to build the first 5G network in the land. They, allegedly, want to get ahead of the phones. The cell towers all have the tech ready for deployment to handle the speed, but the phones aren't there yet.

    I'm pretty sure the new Focus hatch is just to meet CAFE standards to offset the Mustang.

    The Chevy SS was just an American version of the Holden Monero.

    Too little too late little Marco. The time to come out against the tax cut was before it was passed. Not after. You're trying to be Trump and have your cake and eat it too. That only works for Orange Baboons.
