    i doubt chrysler owns them, they actually did a merger not a take-over thats why its daimier chrysler.

    ford by far owns the most. but i dont like so many companies are doing cross platforms. i dont ever want to see a mustang sharing a platform with something from ford australia or volvo lets say. toyota/lexus nissan/infiniti or honda/acura does it thats aight but STILL its like "i bought that acura EL to learn its the same thing as a civic?! god damn it kick in the nuts"

    I'm not sure I mind the cross platforms in Infiniti/Nissan though, I like the fact that an Infiniti G35 in the US and Japan is the new Nissan Skyline in Japan :)

    these are old pics from last year. i think it was taken right after the first washing its had in 20 some years.

    everything but the seats, carpet, guage cluster, steering wheel and column, and that center piece are taken out of the car right now and sitting in my room. everything is cleaned up an pretty much ready to go back in. im just waiting to fix a few leaks and need to order a screw kit then everything goes back in.
    [​IMG]

    im hopeing this weekend ill get the car up on ramps. ill be able to check a couple of hoses that i think are plugged with 36 years worth of crap thats haveing water back up into the car. ill probably also pull the seats out, clean those, and take a shop vac to the carpet and clean that up.

    *interesting.... i thought i put that rip in the drivers seat this winter when i was crawling around inside the car. apparently i didnt.

    i can also say armoral is your friend. my seats look alot better then that right now.
