I agree, I want a half-ton (not a three-quarter ton in a half-ton body either), that gets a real 25+ mpg. The technology is there. I do NOT want any half-ton which can tow 10K lbs, nor haul over 1200 lbs. If I need that capability, I'll BUY a three-quarter or one-ton pickup. The upscaling of half-ton trucks has totally turned me off.

Warren Buffett bought ten million shares of GM($GM). Interesting. GM and Ford ($F) are very different companies. Neither stock has performed particularly well over the past year. Buffett would never buy Ford simply because there are two classes of stock. The Ford family still has ultimate control over the company. When Buffett augers in, he wants some modicum of control. I can’t say that I blame him.

The corporate cultures of the two companies are very different. One example. GM pulled its ads from Facebook. Ford is doing more with Facebook. Another, GM...
