Iacocca for Czar!

December 9, 2008 - Paul Giannamore

The Car Czar is about to begin. All hail the Car Czar.

Anyone remember the "War on Drugs," and the "Drug Czar?"

At last check, drugs are still a scourge and the war isn't even talked about in polite circles anymore.

They're kicking around bureaucrat names, not car guy names.

I'd like to see Lido A. Iacocca named Car Czar. Or Roger Penske.

But Noooooo.

And in case you think the automakers are learning a lesson, consider this.

Cadillac is probably the only make of GM that seems to keep on flying. Great products (i.e. The CTS) mean it's doing OK despite having the Escalade in its lineup.

So, what does GM do?

It "rewards" Cadillac chief, Jim Taylor, by making him head of Hummer, which GM plans to sell.

So, take the one guy who has done something right in the past couple of years and stick him on the sinking lifeboat.

So, we don't need a bureaucrat or an accountant.

America's calling, Lee Iacocca. Lido, you'd know what to do.
