Quote Of The Day

“Dan Akerson is a strong leader with strong views. He’ll need to temper his preconceived notions with a willingness to listen to those who have transformed GM from a product and marketing standpoint,” the now-retired Lutz said in an e-mail from Switzerland. “If he can do that, and I think he will, he’ll be a great CEO.”

Bob Lutz, August 2010

All Fords are exactly alike, but no two men are just alike. Every new life is a new thing under the sun; there has never been anything just like it before, never will be again. A young man ought to get that idea about himself; he should look for the single spark of individuality that makes him different from other folks, and develop that for all he is worth. Society and schools may try to iron it out of him; their tendency is to put it all in the same mold, but I say don’t let that spark be lost; it is your only real claim to importance.
 
Henry Ford

 [When driving the Mercedes SLR McLaren through a tunnel] “When they debate as to what the sound of the SLR engine was akin to, the British engineers from McLaren said it sounded like a Spitfire.
But the German engineers from Mercedes said ‘Nein! Nein! Sounds like a Messerschmitt!’ They were both wrong. It sounds like the God of Thunder, gargling with nails.”

James Bond: Yes.
Q: Fire?
James Bond: Probably.
Q: Property destruction?
James Bond: Definitely.
Q: Personal Injury?
James Bond: I hope not, but accidents do happen.
Q: They frequently do with you.
James Bond: Well, that takes care of the normal wear-and-tear. Is there any other protection I need?
Q: Only from me 007, unless you bring that car back in pristine order.

Years ago I got dispatched to assist a local Law Enforcement Activity on a pedestrian fatal. I stopped at a judge\’s house to get a warrant signed, then drove over to the hospital for the blood draw. The driver\’s attorney was already there. I asked him if he knew what was going on. He shook his head, No. I said, \”Well, your client was southbound on M-24, and he struck and killed a pedestrian.\”

At this the driver\’s face brightens and he looks up. \”Oh, Thank God,\” he says. \”I thought there were two of them!\”

Withdrawing my notebook from my back pocket I looked at the attorney.  “Just a sec,” I said, smiling. “I want to write that down while it’s fresh in my mind.”
