Shades Of AMC?

You remember, right American Motors?

I hate to say it but it kind of looks like Mopar is going that rout.

Feb. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Chrysler LLC is talking to other automakers about using the mechanical underpinnings of their models and putting a new exterior on them in an effort by the third-largest U.S. carmaker to cut costs.


Chrysler, which has 3,600 U.S. dealerships, said yesterday that it will trim the number of models and work with dealerships so that all three of its brands -- Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler --are sold under one roof in most cases.

The company is seeking partners to help develop cars that will serve customers that it's missing with its current lineup.

The dealership consolidation, product cuts and partnerships are designed to make the remaining dealerships more profitable.
