LETTER: Knifleyan writes from home in Europe
Depending on your party affiliation, you'll probably love or hate this
Reader submitted comment follows this letter
Our neighborhood is one of those that General Motors targeted with Chevrolet and Cadillac agencies to try to improve their European sales.
After two years not a single Cadillac or Chevy has appeared in the 'hood.
My neighbor, who is the principle owner of one of the world's most profitable sports franchises, explained it this way:
People outside the USA look at an American car and they see George Bush with headlights and a bumper; can you imagine explaining to your neighbor why you bought something like that?
May explain some of both Ford and GM's problems.
Somewhere in Spain

Re: Letter from Mr. Richard Hovious
Mr. Hovious' letter brings to mind (or what is left thereof) an old & quite possibly apocryphal (I think that's a big word for "probably a whopper") tale: The good folks at Chevy were greatly puzzled as to why a certain model Chevy was selling so poorly in Spain until some sharp duck in the organization figured out that Nova (no va) in Spanish means "no go."
