While GM CEO Dan Akerson is admittedly "not a car guy," it would appear that their new CFO, Dan Ammann is a car guy because he... owns a car.
From the Detroit Free Press profile on Ammann:
[Ammann] had shown an interest in cars before ever joining GM: He's the proud owner of a 1961 Cadillac convertible."
Good to know owning a car means you've shown an interest in cars.
When I was in high school I had a 1962 hand me down Caddie. I was such an idiot I didn't realise how cool that car was.
'Ammann's ability to manipulate numbers, and also understand their implications, helped send him "on a rocketship rise," Bott said" Wha ??? 'manipulate numbers' ???? Yet.... 'Ammann, whom GM declined to make available for this report, lacks accounting experience and will need to beef up his operational expertise before advancing more inside GM.' Ummmmmm - he's been appoiointed at the Chief Financial Officer of Gubment Motors and he 'lacks accounting experience ??? Wisky Tango Foxtrot people!!! But wait...there is more... "But Ammann, an avid sailor who once did an interview while taking his family skiing, had shown an interest in cars before ever joining GM: He's the proud owner of a 1961 Cadillac convertible." You have got to be kidding me right ?? !!! WOW. Seriously - it like I'm reading Pravda !!!
