Forget the Bailout, Here's How to Save Detroit

Our Plan to Save Detroit
It is with tongue planted firmly in cheek that we present you our plan to save the big Detroit automakers from smaller and more efficient foreign cars: They simply need to knock off highly desirable foreign cars, but make them super-efficient and inexpensive by shrinking them! Voilà!

Many more models of the cars of tomorrow below the fold.

Even the Corvette could get this treatment!

It's funny how these pictures keep coming back. In 2005 right after hurricane Katrina, when oil prices were going up rapidly (all the way to $60/barrel, can you imagine the horror!), we suggested that maybe if cars kept shrinking, that someday they'll look like this.
