Who Drives American Cars

Now that I am an owner of GM, I am a bit more aware of what kind of cars are in parking lots. Go to the King Soopers where I shop in south Boulder, and it's not likely you will find anything built by the former "Big Three" unless it is an SUV or truck. But yesterday, I saw a parking lot where about half of the passenger cars were GM, Ford or Chrysler. Can you guess where I was?

If you guessed the Longmont Senior Citizen Center, you are a winner. Apparently the retirees in Longmont are the last folks buying US passenger cars. So, as a nation, we had better provide these folks good health care and keep them alive and driving. They are our only customers.
