    Unfortunately, i am forced to help pay for other peoples bus rides every day, even though there is no bus service anywhere near where i live.
    Unfortunately, i am forced to pay for the 4 filet mignon steaks the lady in front of me in the grocery store bought last saturday, whipping out her access card to pay for them.
    My guess would be that the person buying the Viper has kicked in a lot more tax dollars than the people who are riding the buses and buying filet with access cards(although who knows, i may be wrong there)

    What about the citizens of Ohio who were forced to subsidize Honda in Ohio.
    What about the citizens of Mississippi who were forced to subsidize Toyota s plant, that has yet to produce a car?

    This could go on and on.

    It's good to see things are beginning anew on the right foot (not).

    Don't get me started on public aid loopholes...

    As for Honda and Toyota, their products are significantly more environmentally responsible and have a much broader appeal. As for the number of jobs each project created, I can't speak to that. Looking at the cost/benefit, the Honda and Toyota plants were a much bigger bang for the buck.

    The Toyota plant is currently frozen, IE not finished and no cars being built. That is NO bang for the buck in my book.

    The cost/ benefit ratio of Chrysler bailout will not be known for several years, the same as it wasn't known in Ohio for several years after the Honda plant was built.

    Like i said before, the Viper plant was the smallest, therefore the easiest to restart. Restarting an Automotive assembly plant is a bit more complicated than throwing a switch.

    Let's give this a shot instead of grabbing the rope and looking for a tree ;)

    Chrysler would be rich if they decided to sell the viper for just $20k, but still build it like a supercar. I mean, I'm sure a lot of people would prefer it over a Civic or Corolla or Prius, even if it isn't practical.

    Sounds like Chrysler/Fiat wants to learn as much as they can from the Viper experiment before they sell it off. OR they may want to build up a surplus, cease production, then sell them as a "limited" series for a high profit margin. That would be a pretty good strategy.
