How about three divisions:

GM - Good Ideas Done Well
GM - Good Ideas Flubbed
GM - What The Hell Were They Thinking?

I leave it as an exercise to the student to assign GM cars to their
appropriate division.

Re: GM likely to end up as two divisions

oldsmobile is already dead has been for about a year now.
as far a gm goes, yeah either buick or pontiac will bite the dust.
GMC might go as well, Caddy isn't doing bad but it could do better.
Saturn is kinda on the bubble as well as it's sales aren't exactly
stellar.
just my .02 worth

Re: GM likely to end up as two divisions

Good observations!!!

Strange. Many years ago they busted up Ma Bell to prevent a monopoly.
Now phone companies (both cell and line) are consolidating back toward
one company. Oil companies are buying each other up faster than you
can fill you tank. Banks are doing the same. GM starts getting rid of
models that have been standbys for years. Even Ford is doing it, and
came close a couple of time with the Mustang. And now there's talk
about GM splitting?

Weren't the major companies split like that anyway? Something along
the lines of....
Lincoln/Ford/Mercury
Chrysler/Dodge
Buick/Oldsmobubble
Rambler/Nash

They use the excuse that they can't compete in the
"global market" unless they amalgamate.
