Chrysler to Idle 2 More Plants

Just another example of the Japanese Just In Time manufacturing techniques. They would rather close a plant until needed or shift the load to another plant that is underutilized than have excess inventory.

I don't know that I disagree with it.

Another coworker and I were discussing the automotive industry and the big 3 in particular and we were in agreement on one thing. If any of the 3 will pull themselves out of the mess that they are all in, it will be Chrysler. Maybe this is just the first step. (having a car like the Challenger won't hurt either)

I heard through the grapevine that dealers are charging $60,000 + for the Challenger SRT8, which list somewhere in the 40's. I'm not sure of the exact number.

And they still have accumulated over 7000 orders already.

I don't see Chrysler going away anytime soon.
